Print & Letterpress Summer Session 3
June 20 – July 1, 2021
The Art of Typography
Let’s demystify and deconstruct traditional rules and use letterpress to create expressive typographic art and design. We’ll learn to print from wood and metal types, and we’ll experiment with layering, rotation, systematic variation, backwards transfer, monoprint, monotype, and isotype printing techniques. We’ll also examine and discuss work by designers and artists who use type in dynamic and evocative ways. Together we’ll expand our visual vocabularies and explore new typographic frontiers. All levels. Letterpress studio.
