What you'll learn

Our goal is to help you become a diverse and exceptional artist by creating an environment promoting critical dialogues that investigate contemporary art issues as well as the process of creating art.

  • Lithography
  • Screenprinting
  • Monoprinting
  • Relief 
  • Intaglio
  • Digital printmaking
  • Papermaking
