The department's approach to the four major printmaking disciplines - relief, intaglio, lithography, and screenprinting - is fine arts-based, allowing you to realize your personal vision.
Exposure to techniques and directions such as book concepts, photo-printmaking, computer-assisted printmaking, collagraph, and monoprinting encourages interdisciplinary combinations of printmaking with other media. After a thorough exploration of various print media, you further develop personal content through independent experimentation and focus on the advanced processes of a chosen printmaking medium.
Internships at Pyramid Atlantic in Washington, D.C. and at Dolphin Press + Print on campus allow you to produce limited edition letterpress books, broadsides, and editions in a variety of printmaking media, among other portfolio-building pieces. Our students also play a major role in the annual Baltimore Print Fair and work with major print galleries locally and in New York.
