Introduce students to use of sequential images to tell a story or address an issue. The aggregate of the series being the idea. The work will be presented either by printing the plates as woodcuts or presenting the carved blocks as the finished product, and will cover; carving the block, inking and printing and colour registration.
The title ‘Series’ refers to the idea that a series has a different impact and effect than does a single image or a group of discreet unrelated images. A series can be a narrative, a collection, a sequence, a variation on a theme, etc.
Class will meet for four sessions and students will develop a series of images intended to function as a group. The subject matter chosen will be up to individual students and may range from investigations of the natural world, (landscape, studies of plants, rocks, livestock, etc.) to abstract forms and shapes, to portrait or figure studies, to ‘personal investigations or stories’. The only requirement is that the group of images be intended to be shown together. It will be beneficial for students to identify subject matter they wish to explore prior to the course.
