PrintmakingThe focus of the printmaking studio is the creation of prints as original works of art.
You will become familiar with the age-old yet fascinating process of printing. You will learn, then practice, creative development of content by producing multiple images or a series of images. And above all, you will develop individual, creative imagery that is all your own.
Printmaking techniques include relief, intaglio, lithography, monotype, silkscreen, collagraph, letterpress, photographic and computer assisted applications. Possibilities in mixed media include book arts, “printstallation,” and many others.
Our modern printmaking studio contains a Takach-Garfield lithography press, two Charles Brand intaglio presses, a Challenge proof press, exposure unit and etching room. Non-toxic methods and materials, as well as sustainability in practice are emphasized in the studio.
Class offerings include printmaking (Art 350), intermediate printmaking (Art 405) and senior project in printmaking (Art 420). Independent study opportunities in printmaking are also available by arrangement.
