ARTT 227 - Printmaking: Lithography


(R and TP/SS only)

Processes, materials, and techniques of fine art lithography are explored. Emphasis is placed on expressing visual concepts and ideas through drawing and appropriate technical manipulations on stones and/or plates, and printing in both black and white and color. Students cannot also receive credit for ARTT 228 . Course may be repeated for audit without limit. Two hours lecture, four hours studio each week. Formerly AR 214.

3 semester hours

Course Outcomes:
Upon course completion, a student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate creative problem solving through the application of abstract theoretical concepts, development of observational skills, and the use of technical skills.
  • Recognize and manipulate two-dimensional design elements and concepts such as repetition, variation, rhythm, positive and negative space, unity, and movement. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Observe and analyze fine art prints using the language of design and aesthetics, both in written and oral critiques. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Produce a unique, two-dimensional expressive solution within the boundaries of a specified visual problem. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Demonstrate an understanding of visual literacy as it applies to printmaking expression. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Recognize the diversity and similarity of cultural expression found within the printmaking arts. (Abstract Theoretical Concepts)
  • Identify and generate the elements of shape, line, value, texture, and color for the two-dimensional enhancement of finished prints. (Technical skill)
  • Demonstrate the skills necessary to execute two-dimensional prints exhibiting a high degree of craftsmanship. (Technical skill)
  • Recognize, select and apply appropriate tools, materials, techniques, and computer technology for research, image manipulation and the creation of personally-expressive fine art prints. (Technical skill)
  • Identify and define key technical and aesthetic terms related to printmaking, printmaking processes, and printmaking expression. (Observational skill)
