Printmaking for Illustrators Course Fall 2016


with  Baltimore Academy of Illustration

Instructors: Emily Cucalon and Sarah Robbins of PaperBase
Course ID: BAI.PM2016.1
Schedule: Mondays, 7-10pm, September 12-December 12, 2016

Printmaking is a diverse and multifunctional medium that is an invaluable tool for creating illustrations. This introductory course explores different printmaking processes and how they can be used in a professional illustration practice.

Printmaking for Illustrators will focus on modern processes used by illustrators today which can be found readily in modern commercial works: letterpress polymer plate printing, linoleum block printing, and risograph printing.

This course will be broken into three process-specific units and finish with a final project. Most classes will be held at BAI, with one printing session per unit held at PaperBase’s studio classroom in Midtown/Mount Vernon. The last four weeks will be devoted to a final project of the student’s choosing, using one or more of these processes, and will end in a class print swap.
