Printmaking

Master traditional & contemporary techniques

The printmaking program at Indiana University offers an open, diverse, and holistic course of study based on the individual needs of our broad student population. Students are encouraged to take advantage of IU’s vast resources to realize their creative goals and to work on innovative ventures in other areas and disciplines. The program is committed to pushing the boundaries while not abandoning tradition.

12,000+ square feet of printmaking space

With state-of-the-art equipment for printmaking processes including intaglio/relief, lithography, screen printing, and digital processes, the printmaking workshops are designed for students to work at any size, in any print media or combination of areas.

Inquiry + impression

Students are exposed to all printmaking processes, from 15th-century woodblock to modern practices. Through a rigorous, yet personalized course of study, students develop an individual studio practice.
