2DS 101 - 2-Dimensional Studio ? Principles and Practices of Drawing, Paper and Printmaking
While the focus of this studio is on the practices of drawing and printmaking on paper, a variety of traditions, concepts, techniques and media associated with these and other two-dimensional practices are explored from diverse cultural perspectives. The use of a variety of markmaking tools, mediums and grounds allows for exploration of various modes of expression, representation and abstraction. Collage, rubbing and relief print making techniques on handmade and manufactured paper will further introduce considerations of composition, perspective, scale, pattern, texture and use of colour in regards to overall design.
