studio experience with critical and theoretical dialogue

Printmaking program

The Printmaking Program prepares students to be professional artists and to teach art at the college level. The objective is to offer a program that thoroughly grounds the student in a broad range of traditional, contemporary, and innovative techniques. The program encourages students to formulate and articulate their philosophical and personal concepts and translate them into visual ideas. The program offers a mix of intensive studio experience with critical and theoretical dialogue. The program is dedicated to acquainting students with the rich and diverse world of multicultural art and its formative impact on the contemporary art scene.

Over the past two decades digital technologies have expanded the possibilities for making print-based images and objects in ways that continue to emerge. In response to these new technologies, we redefined our curriculum and introduced new courses. These courses connect students from different areas with digital imagery and the editions of multicolor prints. The changes for the next years are connected with the increasing globalization of culture.
