One of the many wonderful aspects of visual art is that it has so many disciplines. That variety is often one of the reasons it attracted us as educators, but when we are counted on to provide instruction for all the myriad types of art, there is a danger of becoming a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. The Art of Education University’s studio courses are designed to help you develop in mediums that you are unfamiliar with or want to get better at. For many disciplines, art teachers haven’t studied them seriously since college. Now, you are the art teacher in a classroom. You have a wide variety of types of printmaking to teach but which one to focus on and how? Intaglio prints are great, but you aren’t going to be using acid with your students anytime soon. If you teach elementary, you might rely heavily on foam printing. High school teacher? Perhaps you are stuck on linoleum prints. There are so many other advanced options to explore.
This class will break down various printmaking processes that you can use with your students at any age level without fancy equipment and with all of the safety and developmentally appropriate information you need. You will try out various monoprint techniques, image transfers, traditional and nontraditional linocuts, collagraphs and many other unique and alternative processes—no press or chemicals necessary.
As you create useful tools and finished pieces for the classroom, you will also learn how to break printmaking skills down for your students in a developmentally appropriate way and revamp your printmaking curriculum from the inside out!
To complete this course you will need some basic printmaking tools and supplies, many of which you most likely already own. View the materials list for this course.
A sample assignment from Week 3 of the class “Studio: Printmaking.”
"The pace of the class was perfect. It would fit so well into many of my colleague's schedules. All of the content is immediately applicable in the classroom at any level. It was great to share actual art and studio ideas with like-minded people!"
"This class was the first opportunity that I've had to take a studio art class since I took a summer course many years ago. This class encouraged me to create process boards for each unit of printing that we explored. I have already used two of these in the classroom as visual instructions for printing centers. It also encouraged me to continue my printmaking art."
"I LOVE the idea of taking a studio class at home. I do not have the time, or a sitter, to take an extension class at the local college or university and really liked that I was able to try techniques out that I may not have otherwise. You are now my go-to resource for professional development!"
Hundreds of art teachers have taken the course “Studio: Printmaking”. Here’s what they actually think — without cherry-picking.
