Printmaking courses are offered within the Visual Arts (BA)
Students in Printmaking classes explore a variety of methods and practices of multiple-image-making, incorporating a range of conceptual, critical and technical approaches. In so doing, students are encouraged to challenge the limitations of both conventional and experimental processes to create works that are of personal meaning.
Instruction through introductory and upper-level courses emphasizes non-toxic methods and emerging technologies in printmaking processes. Courses explore all the traditional media including intaglio, lithography, monotype/monoprint and silkscreen, in addition to contemporary applications such as digital and photo, as well as papermaking and book arts techniques.
