Our courses in printmaking engage students in the full range of relief, intaglio and lithographic techniques and a rapidly expanding inventory of associated photographic and digital technologies. We take pride in our studio classroom environment—one that encourages craft and motivates creative experimentation, personal discovery, and interdisciplinary cooperation. We work hard to provide students with a forum for self-expression, critical thinking, and self-directed exploration.
