Printmaking today combines 21st Century technologies with time honored traditional print processes. Present-day printmakers use all the print mediums to achieve numerous innovative approaches to contemporary art issues. The printmaking program at UNO teaches the skills necessary for a professional practice in the emerging art world of today.
The courses include printing technologies from the 15th to 21st centuries. The traditional courses cover all aspects of traditional print practices while the photographic and digital courses explore the possibilities of mixing traditional, photographic, and digital mediums to produce hybrid forms of print. Advanced students are encouraged to explore concepts through experimentation with the print processes of their choice.
The facilities provide a complete atelier for print production of intaglio, stone and plate lithography, relief printing and serigraphy. There are also facilities for photographic techniques in each medium and access to professional digital production equipment including wide format printers.
The Visiting Printmakers Program, presented by the UNO Print Workshop, has provided students access to over 100 leading professional artists and printmakers in a working studio setting since 1976. Each artist visits UNO and collaborates with the workshop to produce a limited edition print. The advanced printmaking students assist the artists during the residencies and in the printing of the editions.
