The art and craft of Printmaking includes four major approaches to the design and creation of images and visual artifacts: relief, intaglio, lithography and serigraphy. Students at the beginning level of Printmaking are instructed in basic techniques developed over the course of centuries. Intermediate and advanced students build on this foundation and are introduced to and encouraged to adapt new and evolving materials and methods, building well-rounded skills and developing a strong and exciting personal style of making prints. Instruction in all levels of printmaking encompass color theory, design, composition and history in addition to the mechanical and physical process of creating images in printmaking. The Printmaking studio/lab is well equipped with the equipment, tools and resources for learning relief, intaglio, lithographic and serigraphic processes at all levels, serving the academic requirements of students in the program.
