The printmaking area equally embraces traditional and emerging practices in the medium of print. Interdisciplinary activity is supported, and students are encouraged to explore the connections between printmaking and other studio disciplines.
The curriculum requires students to develop both technical proficiency and familiarity with history and contemporary theory. Beginning classes allow students to practice the creative process using a wide range of shop techniques. Intermediate and advanced classes emphasize individual growth and the realization of a strong personal vision.
The program offers opportunities to participate in exhibitions, conferences, and workshops, on campus and in a broader arts community. Instruction takes place in a workshop environment, including the following facilities: digital imaging and output, intaglio, stone and plate lithography, photo-mechanical processes, relief, and screen print.
