Overview

Designed for the individual studio artist or art teacher, the courses at Edinboro provide a contemporary overview of the various print mediums. The two well-ventilated studios house one relief press, two intaglio presses and three lithographic presses. Our papermaking studio is used to create papers for printing and to extend paper pulp into two-dimensional and sculptural art. In an effort to practice safer forms of printmaking, the screen-printing area is now exclusively using water-based inks.

Learning outcomes

Undergraduate Printmaking students at Edinboro University work alongside graduate students and studio assistants to further hone their skills. Advanced students can develop expertise in using photographic techniques and incorporate electronic and digital imagery into their prints. Students have the opportunity to work with visiting artists as well as attend lecture and slide presentations by these artists. There are also many extracurricular programs for the printmaking student to become involved with, such as the Student Art League and Egress Press and research, our own professional printing studio.
