Handmade Books, Zines and Comics
Section A Meets 6/11/2016 to 7/23/2016
from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
In this course students will work through the stages of content development, design, layout and production to self¬publish their own small book, zine or comic. Students will use games and creative exercises to explore a variety of strategies for generating short texts and visual narratives while testing binding techniques including pamphlet stitch, fold books and stab binding. Finished books will combine text and images reproduced through photocopying or digital printing with unique elements such as hand coloring, stencil and collage.
The Acrylic Monotype
Section A Meets 5/23/2016 to 6/27/2016
from 6:30 PM to 9:45 PM.
Students learn how to make monotypes, or one-of-a-kind painterly prints, on gel plates using acrylic paints and collage. With its unique combination of painting, drawing, and printmaking techniques, the acrylic monotype’s appeal lies in its spontaneity and flexibility, and does not require the use of a printing press. Students will begin by making their own gelatin plate, then experiment with different techniques for developing printed imagery, using both additive and subtractive processes such as painting, drawing, stamping, stenciling, and collage. As they gain confidence with the process, students explore a range of subjects, including the still life, the figure, and abstraction. Note: A fee of $20 will cover materials provided by the instructor. Students will need to purchase additional supplies (list will be distributed at the first class). No class on Monday, May 30.
