The printmaking faculty instructs students thoroughly in technique, and encourages each student to pursue further creative inquiry. In addition to the four basic printmaking processes-lithography, wood cut, intaglio and screen-printing-the printmaking concentration also offers study of digital processes. Instruction is available in up-to-date photomechanical processes, papermaking techniques and archival/curatorial care of art paper. The printmaking concentration offers instruction in something few universities provide: the technically and aesthetically inventive artist book.

“Studio Art opened up many doors for me both personally and professionally ... When people see TCU on my resume it generates a positive response--I'm proud to have been a student there and I am continually reminded of the benefits it has brought my career.”

– Rachel Blackburn Cozad, B.A. '89
