Courses: Art 306 Relief Printmaking, Art 506 Advanced Relief Printmaking
These courses offer instruction in woodcut, wood engraving, and linocut. Skill in the use of hand tools is stressed, as well as experimentation with power tools and the laser engraver. Besides its use as a powerfully expressive medium on its own, the relief print as it is used in typographic design and fine book production is also explored.

Classes in serigraphy (screenprinting) explore various techniques used to develop stencils from basic hand drawn and cut paper designs, to advanced photo and digitigraphic processes. With a workshop linked directly to the digital printmaking studio, these courses emphasize the integration of traditional silkscreen methods, photo techniques, and current computer image processing with large format printing.
