Print Media students work in an atmosphere of intellectual exploration and investigation, with comprehensive print facilities for developing and refining their personal vision.
In UB’s Print Media program, we emphasize the capacity to work consistently and independently on large-scale projects that confront significant artistic issues. Students grapple with diverse points of view, articulate their ideas, and gain a clear idea 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 sculptural 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.
