Description

All printmaking courses are offered in a workshop environment to make available a variety of traditional and contemporary processes in intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, relief, collography, and photographic processes in printmaking. Advanced students work in hand papermaking and bookmaking as well. A broad drawing curriculum is considered essential to printmaking. In addition, the student is encouraged to take advantage of other disciplines and resources in the school and the University.

The B.F.A. degree program in printmaking promotes an open, experimental attitude within the rigors of high professional and technical standards. Students are urged to explore the various technical printmaking processes and their aesthetic qualities before narrowing their interests to a specific technique. As their studies progress, students may pursue a more thorough investigation of a particular process. Students may, however, decide to continue working within a broad scope of printmaking throughout their college careers, taking advantage of the overlapping aesthetic and technical possibilities existing in the range of printmaking processes.

Regular critiques of student work provide an active exchange of ideas on aesthetic and media interests. Faculty members can help students identify and work toward their educational and career goals while they complete the requirements of the program.
