Students in the printmaking program gain experience, technical skills and the ability to approach critical issues confronting both traditional and current systems of printmaking. These include stone and plate lithography, intaglio, relief printing, screenprinting and the incorporation of photomechanical and non-traditional techniques within each process. One of the longest standing print programs in the upper Midwest, the program encourages individual development and stimulates the production of innovative, high quality work. Our faculty members guide students as artists within an intellectual studio context, helping them to master the complex process of creating print-based images. Upon successful completion of the program, students will possess both the necessary technical skills and intellectual faculties critical to an educated artist.
