Printmaking

Saddleback Printmaking Area Saddleback Printmaking courses are an excellent blend of 2D and 3D skill sets.  A wide range of traditional print processes are covered as students progress through the four levels of courses available. 

Serigraphy or silk screen, relief carving, etching, monoprints, photo etching and drypoint are all processes introduced and developed within advanced courses.  Printmaking is taught through introduction historical and contemporary artists and processes.  While developing technical skills students learn tenacity and build community around problem solving.  Critique deadlines for each process/project simulates professional scenarios when students articulate their creative process and reflect on their conceptual choices and results.    Student transfer into Printmaking programs across the country with a strong foundation in making limited edition prints from a diverse range of processes.  This program has the unique capacity to enable students to create multiple originals, participate in art exhibitions and sell their work as emerging artists.  These early successes with social media sales and local exhibitions allows students to envision and build their futures as successful creative entrepreneurs.
