The printmaking program provides scope and flexibility through both its faculty and one of the finest and most comprehensive facilities in the country. Students gain mastery in traditional printmaking processes while pursuing their interdisciplinary interests, including painting, drawing, photography, mixed media, digital media, and book arts. The studio is equipped for work in all of the major media: lithography, silkscreen, intaglio, woodcut, papermaking, and fiber casting.
The extraordinary facilities of the school’s Center for Editions and computer labs provide students with an unusually wide array of technologies for both print and electronic media, ranging from traditional hand tools, letterpress, offset lithography, photomechanical processes, and bookbinding to computer graphics and multimedia. It is the expectation of the printmaking faculty that the rigorous interaction of ideas and tools will promote experimentation and invention among students.
