Printmaking II, Art 373

Macalester College Art Department

Advanced printers can explore known media in more depth and learn new processes such as plazers, photo polymer relief, pronto plate lithography or photo screenprint.
Students can work from hand-drawn and computer-manipulated images. This class has participated in several print portfolio exchange projects with galleries and other schools.
Spring 2010 students exchanged prints with their counterparts at Carleton College. In Fall 2008, Print II students created a portfolio for exhibit at the Tokyo Fine Arts University.
A copy is on view at the Macalester Humanities Resource Center. Printmaking classes 2013 will be held in the Lampert Bldg., 3rd Floor North.

Print II students printed seed packets in letterpress, litho and screenprint as part of a community free seed library project with guest artist Tattfoo Tan, 2012.

Print II students produced screenprinted postcards for St. Paul communities distrupted by lightrail construction in 2011 as part of the Irrigate Project. On right: 2nd color, 20 -up.
