Disciplines : Printmaking

Printmaking is an interdisciplinary art form that has its own unique style as Intaglio, Lithography, Relief, Monotype, and Silkscreen. Digital Printmaking in Lithography, Intaglio, and Silkscreen is taught along with tradition methods. Students are encouraged to combine printmaking with other mediums and extend their ideas from 2D to 3D including installation. Multi-media approaches are strongly recommended in advanced levels.

Printmaking requires an intensive discipline. Patience is essential. Focus and attention are unavoidable. It is an art form based on Chemistry and Math. It has a long history that they must be aware of in order to create their own works. Furthermore, it is visual. No thoughts or philosophy can "be" a print even though it requires them all. Regardless of level, students are individual artists; they are respected to create their own work with an excellence in commitment that leads them to great achievements.
