I love printmaking and I like to do it in every level. If I was to have a
class in only printmaking I would start with:

Simple stamp prints made with erasers, rubber on wood cut like a linoleum
block and paper painted on and rubbed on the paper. These could be
nonobjective with a simple color scheme. This would emphasize the idea of a
print as a way of transposing ink to paper with the help of a printing
vehicle. Intaglio vs. relief print can be discussed.

Next could be the exploration of different printing techniques such as
Linoleum blocks, woodcuts, etchings collagraphs, silk-screen, monoprints
(both oil and waterbased), Even Embossings using railroad board thickness
boards and using
3 to 7 levels and hand pressing them.

This would be a year's worth for me.
