How might ceramics and printmaking coalesce? Participants will create a variety of objects using traditional hand building techniques such as coil, pinch, slab, and drape molding combined with printmaking strategies such as mono printing and screen printing. Students have the opportunity to develop their own visual styles and imagery based on individual interest.
