In this minor, students with an interest in printmaking can develop their practice in one or more media, by working with ideas and techniques fostered in their major, or by treating printmaking as another area of practice. This minor provides a scaffolded pathway for students to learn about visual culture, technologies, and craft through traditional and contemporary printmaking by making prints, experimenting with processes and ways of working, and discussing histories and contexts for printmaking and printed matter. Students are expected to develop their ideas and understanding of their work, creating links between their visual thinking, creative process, and their visual work.
