Printmaking

Printmaking, situated in the Studio Program of Art and Design, encompasses a range of methods for printing and making images, including screen printing, relief, intaglio, lithography, digital printing, monotypes, and other techniques. Intro to Printmaking covers both relief printing and screen printing. Screenprinting, an intro level class, covers exclusively screen printing. Printmaking II teaches intaglio and lithography in alternate semesters (generally intaglio in the fall, and lithography in the spring). Students can also pursue screen printing in Printmaking II. The upper division levels of printmaking increasingly focus the student on creating a personal and professional body of work. In the upper division courses, a strong emphasis is placed on not only making the work, but also documenting it, writing about it, entering it into national competitions, and exhibiting it.
