Herron’s Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Printmaking provides a broad and intensive experience that ranges from traditional and hand made to digital and photomechanical tools and processes as well as the book arts. Offerings include beginning to advanced stone and plate lithography and intaglio (engraving, etching, and aquatint) techniques. Students also explore the language of printing in monotype, woodcut, and silkscreen.
Advanced students have considerable autonomy, working largely in self-defined directions. In consultation with faculty, they focus on the printing technologies most appropriate for individual development. Group critiques, field trips, portfolio projects, student exhibition opportunities, and workshops and lectures by visiting artists complement the studio experience. Discussion, participation, incentives, and role models abound.
