Claire M. Cowie
In depth study of a printmaking method such as sequential printing, multi-block printing, white-ground aquaint, or sugar-lift aquatint.
ART 350 Summer 2013 This course will focus on the printmaking process of collagraph. Developed by Seattle's own master artist Glen Alps, this technique has roots in painting, collage, and sculpture. A term meaning "to draw with glue", collagraph involves building a plate by gluing materials such as fabric, paper, carborundum grit and found media to a substrate of some kind. The plates can be inked and printed both intaglio and relief methods and can easily be made quite large-scale. We will print one-of-a-kinds as well as editions. Summer 2013 will be team taught: Professor Curt Labitzke will teach the first 4 weeks of the course and Affiliate Instructor Claire Cowie will teach the remaining 4 weeks.
