Printmaking

Request Information

Our Printmaking curriculum is rooted in how the print, from its earliest form, has been a way to document, communicate, and disperse information both written and visual. The Printmaking Concentration at Pratt Institute promotes the exploration of visual representation through the medium of print as a primary art form. The program’s structure is based in the traditional mediums of relief, intaglio, lithography, and silkscreen while encouraging the use of photo processes, digital, and alternative methods. The studio courses foster imaginative approaches in addressing formal, technical, and conceptual creative problems. Course work is augmented by offsite visits to the abundance of print collections, collaborative studios, museums, and galleries that NYC offers. The Printmaking Faculty consists of recognized artists who encourage our print majors to explore the medium of print, the form it takes, and their own vision with conceptual and theoretical rigor.
