The intaglio room has one small and two large etching presses, a Vandercook proofing press, attached acid/darkroom, large soaking sink, drying racks and flat file storage. Lithography is well served by two presses, graining sink and a good selection of approximately forty stones. Serigraphy is equipped with screens, a washout area with high pressure sprayer, a darkroom with large exposure unit, 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 number of vats and sheet forming molds. In addition, these studios are made available for student use 24/7.
Undergraduate students are taught all available processes and given the opportunity to develop a focused, solid body of work and the high professional standards required to move forward with a career in the visual arts.
