The Printmaking Track is a set of three courses providing students with educational depth in lithography, intaglio, relief, and monotype, for application to one's own work as well as the challenges of college-level teaching. It may be taken concurrent with the required concentration in drawing, painting or sculpture. The Printmaking Track is designed to advance printmaking's great tradition of craftsmanship, the Academy's dedication to figurative representation, and most importantly the individual student's artistic vision.
“…every material, by virtue of its phenomenal character and its inherent capacity for artistic
treatment, harbors a spirit and poetry of its own which encourages a certain representational
character when artistically approached and which can never be replaced by anything else.”
