Printmaking courses at the undergraduate level are taught in a series of workshops that are structured to guide students in developing a strong personal vision and instill the self-confidence necessary to allow ongoing creative growth. A sound technical background in a variety of media provides students with the basic knowledge needed to cultivate a strong studio practice and explore new authentic research based off of that foundation. The community workshop atmosphere presumes the notion that the interaction of serious, highly motivated artists sharing visual concepts and technical investigations in the same space will undoubtedly lead to a wide array of unique and diverse avenues of creative inquiry.
