The printmaking program strives to present the creative potential in various print media,
including intaglio, lithography, relief, screen printing, non-toxic techniques, new
technologies, and alternative methods. The historical traditions of printmaking are
valued, while new innovations and definitions become the framework for discussion
and challenge. Students explore the creative process of printmaking through skillful
application and conceptual development, and learn how print media has played an important
role in major art movements and in contemporary art. While expanding the definition
of print, students are encouraged to develop their work in a collaborative learning
environment through critical review, mentoring, engaging assignments, and discussions.
The strength of the program starts with the close and cooperative working relations
among the printmakers and faculty.
