Printmaking allows students to experiment with the printed image as a core strategy for their artistic exploration. Traditional and alternative appraches to techniques are encouraged, building toward a personal and expressive vision. Material awareness is a key component of printmaking, as students etch zinc plates, carve woodblocks, and chemically process lithographic stones to create mulitples or one-of-a-kind images.
