Notes from Studio 1801
Print & Book Arts at Foothill College
Print Arts covers a broad spectrum of print technologies from letterpress printing (think Gutenberg), to digital printmaking (think inkjet). Print processes include screenprinting, etching and intaglio, relief, lithography, gravure and monoprinting. Print projects include fine art prints, multiples, ephemera, broadsides, posters, postcards, mail art, t-shirt printing, and book arts. Book Arts covers a range of processes from book design and hand bookbinding to more contemporary and hybrid applications including artists books, scrapbooks, journals, zines, comic books, boxes and portfolios, altered books and one-of-a-kind books. Foothill's "Studio 1801" is regarded as one of the best Community College printmaking studios in the country. Our studio and courses use non-toxic printmaking processes and has integrated traditional and digital media since the early 90's.
GID 40: Digital Printmaking will be taught this quarter for the last time at Foothill College. The course description reads "Introduction to the creative, expressive and experimental possibilities of using digital media to produce fine art prints. Emphasis on image creation, printing technologies and printing techniques."
Undercurrents, A themed portfolio of original prints by fifteen Bay Area artists, is now in the collection of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The portfolio includes prints by faculty Mike Day, Eric Kneeland and Kent Manske.
Alicia Bailey, Book artist, printmaker, curator and gallerist will talk about her work here at Foothill on Friday, February 6 at 1:30 pm. Print & Book Arts Speaker Series
