Printmaking


Printmaking at Utah State University is renowned for their thriving community of skilled faculty and students who are deeply committed to innovation in traditional print processes. Courses focus on the print media of intaglio, lithography, relief, and screen printing. Beyond process students are asked to consider the immense range of what a print can be, the influence of printed media in art movements, the history of information, and the future of reproducible media.  

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. Graduates of the printmaking program become self-sustaining artists, educators, and designers. The strength of the program starts with the close community of printmakers and faculty and reaches out to a growing network of alumni in the fields of art, academia, and design.
