ART 298 - Printmaking for Social Change


Printmaking has played an important role in the action space of social change. That remains true today. In this course we will explore how printmaking, primarily SCREENPRINTING and RELIEF techniques, have been used to advance the cause of social movements, past and present, in the USA and globally. Students will dive into printmaking as resistance, as social commentary, as community building. Through art and design projects, such as activist prints and posters, artist’s books, and T-shirt design, students will investigate storytelling and visual advocacy to raise awareness and inspire change.
