This subject will introduce students to the unique possibilities inherent in printmaking techniques, with a technical focus on screenprinting processes. As well as focusing on the development and application of screenprinting skills and techniques, students will be introduced to historical and contemporary contexts for screenprinting practice.

Within the workshop, students will be encouraged to explore their own work and utilise a selection of techniques by engaging with ideas of repetition, difference, and variation. This subject is designed to explore fundamental screenprinting processes as a vehicle for imaging ideas and for image production, as well as to motivate and involve students in analytical thinking about visual perception. It also includes an induction into the Screenprinting workshop, with an emphasis on Occupational Health & Safety.

Though this subject is designed for students who have little or no previous screenprinting experience, it will also suit students who have previously undertaken a visual art Breadth subject or similar.

Intended learning outcomes

  • This subject will enable students to comprehend, apply, develop and demonstrate skills and techniques relevant to screenprinting processes.
  • This subject will enable students to gain knowledge and understanding of a range of methods and materials to enable confidence in exploring and experimenting with a variety of screenprinting processes.
  • This subject will enable students to confidently navigate a professional screenprinting workshop and effectively create visual outcomes within this environment, including a practical understanding and application of sound occupational health and safety practices.
  • This subject will enable students to exhibit evidence of skill development pictorially, technically and conceptually as a means of independent image making.
  • This subject will enable students to explore, articulate and critically analyse (during class, in the visual diary and in writing) the ways in which screenprinting has existed in both historic and contemporary art, and how this form of artistic production can be used to create relevant and meaningful works of art.
