About

Printmaking merges some of the oldest artistic processes of replication with the newest. The curriculum of the Printmaking program of San Francisco Art Institute provides students the opportunity to work with lithography, intaglio, screenprinting, letterpress, artists’ books, and relief. Digital methods for the production of two- and three-dimensional works are integrated throughout.

Overview

Artists who use printmaking at SFAI critically examine such concepts as multiplicity, reproducibility, and the “matrix” of the print in relation to contemporary art practice, ranging from popular to “high art” forms. Students of the Printmaking program of San Francisco Art Institute also expand ideas of display, exploring the full range of exhibition possibilities from traditional print editions to sculptural, installation-based, and interactive approaches.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students learn three to four major print media beyond Introduction to Printmaking. This would include Intaglio, Lithography, Artist Books, and/or Multiplicity.
  • Students gain a specialization and the beginning of an expertise in at least one major print media upon graduation.
  • Students complete a body of work, including an artist statement, which fundamentally addresses the work, both aesthetically and technically.
  • Students have a one-person exhibit in the Ascension Gallery. This work must be done in the Senior year and must be a cohesive body of work. One or more Printmaking faculty reviews this exhibit.
