Course Attribute

This is a minor title change request so that the class can be listed in the spring schedule with a more understandable name. This course was imported at the Corcoran merger - the course title was more functional in that context.

The printmaking and papermaking curriculum is under full review in the coming academic year and the content of this course will be evaluated at that time.
