Explore the endless creative and technical possibilities in this traditional art form: etching, lithography, relief, screen-printing, papermaking.

Work by 2011 Printmaking medal winner Aanchal Malhotra.


The Printmaking curriculum emphasizes an exploration of the endless creative and technical possibilities in this traditional art form.

You are introduced to five primary processes:

  • etching
  • lithography
  • relief
  • screen-printing
  • papermaking

In Printmaking, you may specialize or work with any number of techniques to develop innovative works in bookbinding, photo-etching or digital processes with text, type and image composition.

First, you learn the basics of ink and colour-printing and how to produce images on screens. You then embark on large, complex projects while developing your own artistic voice. In the final year, you create a self-directed independent body of work using single or multidisciplinary processes.

As a Printmaking graduate, you can focus on a studio practice, produce and curate printmaking exhibitions, design bookworks, or pursue a future as an educator, commercial designer, or arts administrator.
