During the two semesters, you will build on your knowledge and improve your understanding of the design process. 

You will be given the freedom to explore all printing techniques throughout the course. You are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects your personal practice, individual interests and the work of other artists. This becomes a personal journal of creative development during the course.
