ART 324 - Papermaking

3 credits
What is paper? Paper is a seemingly non-descript material that we touch daily. Historically, it has cross-culturally paved the way for mass dissemination of knowledge, power, wealth and information. In this course students will learn how to make paper by hand (Eastern and Western style), explore its structural and tactile characteristics, and engage in papermaking as an artistic means of creative expression. Students will investigate the cultural significance, sustainability, and social impact paper has made over time. Paper will serve as an avenue to approach methods of creating, communicating, and analyzing through interdisciplinary lenses. (Course can be repeated for up to six credits.)
