Printmaking

Our Printmaking program supports students in their development of a personal vision and studio practice informed by a rich tradition and ever-expanding approaches to imagemaking. In our careully maintained printmaking studios students explore intaglio, relief, lithography, screen printing, monotype, artist’s bookmaking and interdisciplinary processes integratrating both handmade and photo/digital matrixes. ­­

Our Printmaking faculty are nationally and internationally recognized professional artists who train students with technical skills, instill a sense of conceptual rigor, promote creative research and mentor students for professional development opportunities. Our program collaborates with print businesses in the region to offer students industry experience and develop professional networks. The Printmaking Association of North Texas Students (PANTS) organizes exhibitions, community events, field trips, fund raisers, awards, visiting artist events and portfolio exchanges.

Students have opportunities to assist visiting artists and master printers at P.R.I.N.T., UNT’s collaborative fine art press. P.R.I.N.T. Press trains students in the environment of a professional print shop by providing a guided environment for them to work with recognized artists and master printers. By working hands-on in the studio, they assist the production, curation, exhibition and marketing of prints while testing industry developments and research.

Students pursuing the BFA create a substantial portfolio of artworks that culminates in a group exhibition. The MFA program integrates artistic research, contemporary theory, and practice culminating in a thesis exhibition.
