Overview and Facilities
The printmaking program at Baylor offers classes in the full spectrum of print techniques and methods: Intaglio/etching, Lithography, Serigraphy, and Woodcut Relief.
All art students in the department will take one or more classes as a part of their specific major area requirements and electives. Courses offered include Intaglio I, Advanced Intaglio, Lithography I, Advanced Lithography, Serigraphy, Woodcut/Relief as well as Independent Study 4V90.
The BFA Degree in Printmaking requires all of these courses as a part of the major as well as other art requirements in painting, drawing, photography, and electives in other art areas in the department.
The major in printmaking trains students to think creatively and conceptually as well as to be highly knowledgeable about all techniques related to the production of fine art prints. The BFA program in printmaking focuses on preparing the student to be highly competitive in graduate programs and other professional careers creating fine art prints.
Students through the years have gotten into top graduate programs on the MFA level including Pratt, University of Texas, The University of Dallas, UTSA, University of Wisconsin Madison, UC Berkeley, Colorado State, University of New Mexico, University of Indiana, University of Nebraska, University of Tennessee, and Columbia. The program has produced one Tamarind Master Printer and a number of students that are teaching and working as independent artists. Although competitions are not stressed on the BFA level, a number of students have entered and been accepted to regional and national print competitions.
