While various printmaking media--cardboard cut, woodcut, etching, engraving, drypoint, and aquatint--are taught technically, each student is expected to adapt them to his or her particular vision. Students learn to develop a print through a series of proofs with critical consideration as an important input in this progression from idea sketch to final edition. Extensive use is made of the Davison Art Center print collection.
