IMMERSES STUDENTS IN TRADITIONAL AND CONTEMPORARY IDEAS AND PROCESSES, EMPHASIZING PERSONAL VOICE AND VISION, HIGH STANDARDS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP, AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
Printmaking immerses students in traditional and contemporary ideas and processes, emphasizing personal voice and vision, high standards of craftsmanship, and professional practice. Through a rich, interdisciplinary studio experience you’ll explore intaglio, lithography, relief printing, screenprinting, monotype, letterpress, book-making, artist publications, digital and 3D printing. The printed multiple is explored and utilized as integral to contemporary art practice as a means of communication, as objects for dispersal and dissemination, as accumulation and installation, and as material documentation.
A diverse faculty of professional artists and master printers support student growth technically, formally, materially, and conceptually. The curriculum is supported by a skilled, on-site print studio manager; visiting artists; Watershed, our in-house publishing program; and relationships with print shops, master printers, working artists, and galleries.

She’s had recent exhibitions in Tækniminjasafn (Seyðisfjörður, Iceland), and Kasteel Le Paige (Herentals, Belgium).Read More
