The Printmaking Program emphasizes artistic innovation and experimentation, while offering a thorough grounding in both traditional and contemporary technique. Course offerings include Etching, Silkscreen, Digital Printmaking, Collage, Woodcut, Photopolymer Gravure, Monotype, Artists' Books, and Animation. Printmaking is taught in terms of its relationship to the cultural issues of reproduction, communication, exchange, consumption, rarity, and originality, as well to the practices of drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. A "print" may be a mixed media work-on-paper; a paper or printed fabric sculpture; a photo-etching created from a digital file, or a wallpaper installation, for example. The technical procedures employed may continue traditions dating to the Renaissance, utilize digital imaging, or combine both approaches in a single printwork.
