CPR 3250. Lithography. 3 Credits.
Designed as an exploration of the lithographic process, which involves both the direct application of drawing on stone and aluminum plate and the use of photographically derived imagery. This course is a great introduction to printmaking, as well as an excellent tool for more advanced students. Lithography can be a highly expressive drawing medium as well as a versatile technical tool for the manipulation of photography. Students will be able to sample both skills, with expert guidance from CCAD's printmaking faculty. Ambitious prints will be realized in black and white and color, and will be driven by images and imagination. Students will learn some great technical skills while getting critical feedback on their ideas. At times this course may be cross-tallied at the graduate level as CPR 5250. Students seeking graduate credit will be required to do additional work including a research paper and formal presentation of their work and ideas to the general class.
