The Discipline of Printmaking is a sequence of courses that provides for research and rigorous inquiry into the means, methods and practices of image production.The focus is on repetition, multiplicity, and sequence as they relate to the printed image. Students are encouraged and enabled to experiment and test the limits of both conventional and current digital printmaking practices. Access to the print studios, related spaces and equipment is limited to students who are currently enrolled in classes.
The program offers a comprehensive exploration and inquiry into the discipline of printmaking through a sequence of introductory and upper-level courses in Intaglio, Aluminum Plate, Stone and Offset Lithography, Digital Media: Still Image, Digital Media: Time Based, Monotype, Silkscreen, and Relief Printmaking. Photo Intaglio, Photo Silkscreen and Photo Lithographic processes as well as Book Arts are also taught as part of an integrated curriculum. Course are largely practice-based and aim to develop potential through an investigation of methods and techniques appropriate to the realization of individual ideas and interests.
Like all traditional mediums, printmaking continues to expand upon its traditional base. Some of the recent major advancements have occurred at the crossing of digital and analog procedures. The Digital Print Center, housed within the print studios, supports large format pigment printing as well as scanning and the generation of 'film positives' for use with screen printing, lithography, photo-etching, and output onto other media.
For juniors and seniors, study abroad programs and internship opportunities are strongly encouraged.
Completion of a written Thesis about the creative work together with a BFA Thesis Project exhibition is a requirement for graduation.
