Print-making is a technique that allows artists to economically create multiple pieces of artwork for their clientele. Within this module, participants will learn different techniques of print-making and explore individual creative expression through colours and printing mediums. By the end of this module, each student would have created their own series of mono and/or linoleum prints.
In this module, participants will discover the power of design as a communication tool. They will also experience how visual imagery can communicate information, as well as evoke, describe and express a feeling, action, object or a situation. Additionally, one will be encouraged to explore a medium and/or technique that interests her or already is proficient in thus getting an opportunity to upgrade skills and use it for design work. By the end of this module, each student would have created her own visual narrative (story).
Design practice in current times is moving to a collaborative space and working in a team is an essential skill for all designers. Within this module, participants will work as part of a small group to engage with IIAD's design learning approach of thinking through making. One will learn skills in model making, exploring 3D building, making and shaping using basic studio materials (such as paper, metal wire, plastic pipe, etc.). Material exploration and manipulation forms the backbone of this unit. By the end of this module, each group will have built a theme based 3D model.
