Printmaking merges some of the oldest artistic processes of replication with the newest.
SFAI’s Printmaking curriculum provides the opportunity for students to work with lithography, intaglio, screenprinting, letterpress, artists’ books, and relief. Digital methods for the production of two- and three-dimensional works are integrated throughout.
Artists who use printmaking at SFAI critically examine such concepts as multiplicity, reproducibility, and the “matrix” of the print in relation to contemporary art practice, ranging from popular to “high art” forms. Students also expand ideas of display, exploring the full range of exhibition possibilities from traditional print editions to sculptural, installation-based, and interactive approaches.
