Poster Power through Screen Printing
Exploring the power of the poster as art and advertising is the premise of this course. The process of creating a poster, from concept through final execution, will be covered. Students will complete a minimum of eight projects, each with a different focus. In the spirit of artists like Shepard Fairey, Barbara Kruger and Andy Warhol, we will examine how to experiment with concept, symbolism, form and function. Projects will be collectively researched and ideas will be presented for discussion. Projects will be printed using a range of screen-printing techniques, 56 and students will experiment with printing on substrates, applying various inks and ink alternatives. We will also examine the aesthetic and the expressive power of posters created by masters in this field. Note: Open to advertising and design majors only.
