Printmaking Philosophy

The goal of the Printmaking Concentration is to provide our students with an introduction to a broad range of technical and creative tools that will allow them to discover new ways of adding to the printmaking tradition.  Processes include intaglio, lithography, relief,silkscreen, photo mechanical techniques, and book arts media. Along with the technical processes, our students learn about artistic self-analysis through group and individual critiques.

Printmaking students are encouraged to actively participate in two student organizations.  The Printmaking Guild is comprised of printmaking students and promotes printmaking within the School of Art and Design, the university, and the community.  The Visual Arts Forum is a school wide organization that functions as a liaison between student government, member organizations, faculty, and staff.
