Students discover the vital contribution that printmaking has made to the language of contemporary art practice, and how recent technological advances have broadened its scope. Much time is spent independently researching and undertaking students' own practice-based projects. Students receive technical inductions for the use of both traditional and emerging processes (including relief printing and intaglio, screen print, lithography, photo-based and digital media) and are free to experiment with, and combine, them in their creative work. Throughout the course students have support from experienced print and fine art practitioners, and benefit from working in a supportive and critically informed art school.
