VPAS 689 Visual Arts for the Classroom: Non-Silver Printing Processes

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course provides educators an intense hands-on experience with the photographic/printmaking process of hand-coating paper and exposing it to actinic light (UV light or sunlight). Spend time exploring 19th century non-silver printing processes, including gum bichromate. You will be introduced to the history of gum printing, along with other non-silver processes, from the late 1800s and into their dormancy and rebirth in the 1970s through the present day. Educators will develop simple 1,2 or 3 layer gum prints using a variety of 2D and 3D light resists, and an understanding of how to integrate this process and use these incredibly timeless printing practices in today’s K-12 classrooms.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
