Printmaking

Blog Featured Image

This program trains students to become professionals in printmaking, on both the artistic and the technical levels.

During the first two years of study, students are prepared to work in an environment of artistic creation and promotion that requires special skills, not only in using consolidated procedures, but also in the exploration of other techniques and materials.

Students will learn how to obtain multiple yet limited images using the techniques of woodcut,  itaglio, lithography and screen-printing, combining traditional techniques with the latest technological advances in digital printing.

NOTA INFORMATIVA

Oferta de Cicle de doble titulació d’enquadernació i gravat i tècniques d’estampació.

Aquest cicle formatiu forma l'anomenat Pack amb Enquadernació (que suposa l'avantage de possibilitar una doble titulació).

Per cursar un dels cicles formatius del pack l’alumne/a es matricula a una de les especialitats. En el primer curs hi ha matèries comunes alhora que hores específiques en els tallers de l' especialitat escollida.

IMPORTANT !: en el moment de la matrícula s'ha d'inscriure al codi comú corresponent al cicle de gravat i tècniques d'estampació. És després, a la pròpia escola, on optarà per una de les dues especialitats. La titulació final obtinguda serà la cursada, sigui gravat o sigui enquadernació.

Opcionalment, amb sols un tercer curs podrà obtenir la titulació en l'altra especialitat afí (doble titulació)

S’ha creat també una assignatura que serà comuna a tots els alumnes, el Laboratori Experimental de Litografia i Enquadernació, que vol ser ressò de la demanda per part de l’alumnat d’una assignatura on es fusioni la imatge i el concepte del llibre, on l’alumna aprengui nocions d’edició, de concepció i realització de carpetes, llibres, llibre-objecte, amb l’aprenentatge de tres tècniques: l’enquadernació, la litografia i la xilografia. Aquesta assignatura serà molt flexible, adequant-se a les necessitats i capacitats de cada alumna.

Les altres assignatures com dibuix o tècniques gràfiques industrials son comunes a les dues especialitats, com es feia fins ara.
