Printmaking explores the aesthetics, nature and process of the printed image. The sequence of courses expose students to a multitude of traditional and contemporary processes such as woodcut, monotype, intaglio, serigraphy, and relief as well as photolithography, photo silkscreen, photopolymer, and photo etching. Students accumulate a broad range of printmaking knowledge and skills before deciding on an individual artistic specialization.
Our print shop features two presses and has a fully equipped and ventilated etching area, solvent area, and aquatint box. Students have access to a dedicated computer lab complete with a postscript laser printer and a large format inkjet printer for contemporary hybrid print exploration.
