This course is an introduction to printmaking, which will be explored through the making of cardboard, linoleum, and wood relief prints.

Students will complete a portfolio of prints reflecting their artistic concerns and development. Prior printmaking experience is not a prerequisite. In coordination with the studio part of this course, visits will be made to a museum print collection, printshop/artist studio, and galleries. For Leadership in the Arts (with Parsons The New School for Design) students only.
