You’ll get your hands dirty—possibly stained for weeks a time. What you’ll also do is create some spectacular art, blending cutting-edge technology with century-old printmaking techniques. MECA challenges the idea of traditional printmaking, encouraging you to push your work beyond the 2D, into the world of object-based art. You’ll learn about “thinking print”—the thought process of printmaking—and examine the relationship between making and thinking. You’ll work with letterpresses, silkscreening, woodblock printing, lithography, acid etching and computer-based photo and digital print processes. Your technical skills will grow, your design sense will evolve and you will master a physical process that demands patience,skill and limitless creativity.
