Printmaking surrounds us and is an integral part of our society today. We depend on printed text, advertising and art as a primary source for information and entertainment. Students will create their own relief printing plates, ink them up and produce a print. Once a relief plate is made multiple prints can be made from the same plate, unlike other art forms. As a ﬁne art form, printmaking continues to be recognized around the world for its method, diversity, and beauty.
