with a concentration in Printmaking (B.A.)
Do you like drawing and painting but wish you could make multiple original works of art to share? Printmaking offers limited editions of prints created through a variety of artistic techniques.
Prints are produced by drawing or carving a composition on a hard surface such as a wood block, metal plate, or stone. This surface is then inked and the image is transferred to paper by the application of pressure, thus creating an "impression" or print. Whether single- or multi-colored, the basic processes Methodist University students use are intaglio, relief, planographic, and screen-printing ... each with a distinctive quality. Printmaking artists can pick and combine these processes based on their desired effect. The printmaking program at Methodist will emphasize your experimentation, personal expression, creativity, and craftsmanship.
