Students who sign up for the Printmaking Minor will gain an understanding of various Printmaking techniques that will enable them to explore ideas and create work that may influence and support the development of work in their major. As students become exposed to a variety of new techniques and approaches to image making, ideas may develop that take their work in completely new directions. Although one area, Printmaking includes Screenprinting, Intaglio, Relief printing and Lithography, and all are quite different techniques. The area utilizes photo techniques (including laser engraving), tactile carving techniques, etching of metals (primarily Copper), drawing and painterly applications.
Academic and Career Opportunities
The Department of Art and Art History offers students many chances to network and get involved: for example, Under Pressure is a student printmaking organization that hosts events and professional development opportunities for members. Students minoring in printmaking can participate in annual extracurricular events, including PaperWest, Rocky Mountain Printmaking Symposium, and national printmaking conferences.
