This subject will explore through studio practice and theory, the artmaking processes of printing and collage, and their diverse purposes as forms of communication and social engagement. The subject offers a practice-based investigation orientated towards community and collaborative learning. This investigation involves engaging in an artistic collaboration with a local school, and in a negotiated community focussed project incorporating artistic practice. Key principles of visual perception, design and analysis will be reinforced through explorations in a range of printmaking techniques (such as monoprinting, lino printing, drypoint etching, stencil printing, collographs) and collage-making techniques.
