The graduate Printmaking program offers a full range of printmaking media. Mastery of selected printmaking
techniques as evidenced by a professional-level final exhibition, is required at the conclusion of the student's
graduate studies. The Printmaking area consists of nearly 4,000 square feet in rooms that are dedicated to the
processes of intaglio/relief, lithography, serigraphy and papermaking. In addition, graduate students in
printmaking are assigned private studios near the printmaking area. The intaglio room has two large and two
small etching presses, a Van der Cook proofing press, attached acid/darkroom, large soaking sink, drying racks
and flat storage. Lithography is well served by two presses, graining sink and a good selection of approximately
forty stones. Serigraphy is equipped with screens, an exposure unit, high pressure sprayer, racks and
individualized printing stations.
The Papermaking studio has a 30-ton wet press, two drying presses and cabinet, Clark Hollander beater,
McDonald bast stamper, Hilger Vacuum table, and a variety of vats and sheet forming molds.
