You will be challenged in an atmosphere of intellectual exploration and investigation, combined with comprehensive print facilities within which students can develop, explore, and refine their personal vision.
The capacity to work consistently and independently on large-scale projects that confront significant artistic issue is underscored. Students grapple with diverse points of view, articulate their ideas and gain an awareness of professional practice in print media.
New technologies and conventional processes offer students multiple opportunities and alternatives to define their own aesthetic and conceptual aspirations. Today more than ever, artists are adapting and blending print technologies with interactive media, photographic and sculpture forms.
The Print Media program maintains five labs that house equipment, tools, and chemistry for instruction in printmaking and the creation of artist books. All labs are open 67 hours per week with a lab technician covering 30 hours and lab monitors covering evenings and weekends.
