Located in the Sawyer Fine Arts Center, the printmaking studio offers students a well-lighted and convenient area for classes and individual work. Since printmaking began in Europe in the 15th century, it has been re-invented and re-born several times, especially as working artist-printmakers have introduced new technologies and new approaches to the medium.

At the introductory level, printmaking students study the four basic printmaking areas: intaglio, stone lithography, relief and screenprinting. Students also study original contemporary and old master prints.

As students progress through the curriculum, they advance to new processes, techniques and materials, including: monotypes, collagraphy, chine-collé, multicolor printing, and papermaking. In the advanced courses, students are encouraged to explore and experiment with other process of historical and contemporary interest.
