Course Title: Introduction to Printmaking
Tutor: Brian Hodgson
Dates: 2 – 5 April 2012
This week at Camberwell College of Arts we have a short course, Introduction to Printmaking, taking place in our printmaking workshops. This is a great opportunity for amateur or professional artists (with little or no experience) to come into the College, be taught the basics of printmaking by one of our expert tutors, and enjoy real hands-on opportunities to explore visual ideas, via a variety of methods, in some of the best print studio facilities in the country.
The students on this course are given an introduction to a variety of print processes including monoprinting, etching, relief printmaking and lithography. Brian then guides students to experiment and explore their own ideas, encouraging them if they wish to focus on a specific area.
Students finish the course with a body of printmaking work – a useful addition to any portfolio – and an understanding of the different print processes, enabling them to pursue more specialised printmaking courses if they wish.
The CCW Short Course team offer short courses throughout the year in a wide range of subject areas. For more details please see the website at: http://www.camberwell.arts.ac.uk/shortcourses/
