Printmaking Minor

In Printmaking, particular attention is given to developing the student’s personal imagery, built upon a solid foundation in traditional and non-traditional processes. This program provides a cohesive offering of courses that focus upon the students’ visual expression through their examination of formal issues, media exploration, relevant histories, contemporary critical discourse, and diverse approaches to problem-solving.
