Course Description

Protest art has been used in history and modern times to inspire social action, support political movements, and mobilize networks using creative and cost-effective tactics. In this 6-week course, students will use techniques of relief printmaking such as  linocuts, collage, collagraphs, and other experimental printmaking techniques to develop their own visual communications to express social issues. Through demonstrations, lectures, critiques, and studio time, students will develop personal artworks while gaining knowledge about a varied and rich history of protest art in the world addressing peace, justice, freedom, human rights, and economic equality. Topics include history of printmaking, social art movements, visual communication as expression, symbolism and branding, and contemporary and historical art activists.
