This course presents an overview of graphic art forms ' photography, printmaking, and digital imaging. Students explore ways that photographic, mechanical, and electronic tools have influenced both artistic production and the dissemination of art. This course asks students to consider the varied potential of the two- dimensional multiple for visual communication. With this in mind, students write research papers and create hands-on artistic projects, both as individuals and collaborators. The course format also includes group discussions, slide lectures, student presentations, a presentation by a guest speaker, and trips to museums and print shops.
