Alternative Printmaking: Beginning Japanese Woodblock Technique
ARST 461 FA
Students are taught traditional Japanese techniques for conceptualizing a design in terms of woodcut, carving the blocks and printing them, first in trial proofs and editions. After understanding how both of these
were originally used and then seeing how contemporary artists have adapted them to their own purposes, both for themselves and in collaboration with printers, students will use them to fulfill their own artistic vision.
Considerable use is made of the Davison Art Collection of traditional and contemporary Japanese prints as well as many European and American woodcuts.
