Professor Ann-Marie Manker and Professor Robert Brown teamed up to assist ILLU 205 students in creating movie poster designs with stencils and monoprinting. Paying homage to designer Saul Bass, students constructed their designs based on silhouettes and bold shapes. Students learned basics printmaking techniques and enjoyed the out of class experience. A demo was held on Friday, February 15 and the class worked in the print shop during class the following Monday and Wednesday. Thanks to Prof. Brown and all of printmaking students and lab techs who helped guide the way!
