ARTH 31800 - History of Prints

Course Credit: 1
HISTORY OF PRINTS From their inception around 1400 in Europe, the graphic media have established social functions and aesthetic criteria that differ considerably from those of painting, sculpture, and architecture. This course surveys the techniques and development of printmaking, explores the various implications of the multiplied image on paper, and makes use of the College’s print collection to give students firsthand experience in viewing and interpreting prints. The course culminates with a student-curated exhibition held at The College of Wooster Art Museum. Recommended: ARTH-10100 or ARTH-10200 [AH, W]
