The Printmaking Program embraces a full range of technologies and ideas as part of the contemporary art and culture dialogue. We encourage students to explore the multiple possibilities of print and book arts to develop an individual and sustained pathway as an artist, whether printmaking is the central practice or the support for other processes.
