Visual Arts Printmaking is a course for students who wish to work on an individually chosen proposal.
Students will develop and extend their practical and conceptual knowledge of printmaking practices through the process of research, drawing and production of finished works. The printmaking processes covered include relief, drypoint, monoprint, and stencil. Students are encouraged to select the process that best suits their purpose. Students will be encouraged to enter the Scholarship examination.
