Students studying in this emphasis focus on the creation of the printing matrix and the necessary skills needed to transfer an impression of the matrix to the printed surface. Students explore traditional and non-traditional processes found in intaglio, screenprinting, relief, and lithographic processes. The printmaking curriculum emphasizes skill/technical development, historical knowledge, process specifics, contemporary themes, and the development of highly personal prints.
