In the Printmaking major, you will be introduced to a broad range of technical and conceptual tools. The major is a meeting ground for a variety of processes and platforms, including installation, public projects, and digital media. You will be encouraged to expand on traditional techniques and presentations through experimentation with the mark, the matrix, and the multiple. The program has a history of innovative, large-scale, mixed-media approaches to the printed and drawn mark.
Our facilities encourage the varied technical and conceptual views of the major. Our presses, papermaking, and etching facilities support large-scale works up to 5 x 10 feet.
You will also benefit from the unique learning experiences gained from Island Press, which gives you a chance to be part of a project by a professional artist. Artists work with a master printer and alongside students and faculty who act as assistant printers and papermakers.
