The Advanced Printmaking Intensive focuses on teaching students new/traditional printmaking techniques and developing skills on all levels. Students and professionals have access to all printmaking techniques but focus on their primary area of interest. The course gives students opportunities to learn the processes of photogravure, intaglio, silkscreen, woodcut, offset lithography, and laser engraving by working with established contemporary artists and master printers. Throughout the course, students have the opportunity to visit artists’ studios and prime New York print shops. They are exposed to the inner workings of the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies publishing operation at Columbia University. This course is designed for three distinct types of students: college graduates preparing to apply for MFA programs, experienced printmakers looking to increase their knowledge of techniques and the inner workings of print shops, and seasoned artists and teachers wishing to learn additional techniques to bring to their practice.
