The University of Wyoming Printmaking studio is equipped for relief, intaglio, and
lithographic printmaking processes. Students work with traditional and historical
printmaking processes, as well recent additions to the printmaking lexicon that provide
connections to photographic and digital media. Students explore making multiples and
variables, as well as exploring the print as it moves beyond the framed image. Typically,
students in upper-division courses combine printmaking media and processes with the
exploration of their studio practice in other disciplines.
Equipment for papermaking and letterpress are located in the Printmaking studio and
Book Art is taught as an allied area in the Printmaking studio. Book Art classes
begin with traditional construction techniques, and students are encouraged to build
upon tradition as they develop book art skills and explore the book as an object and
vehicle for sequential image-making. The resulting works represent a variety of technical
and conceptual directions grounded both in Fine Press and Artist Book traditions.
Within the Art and Art History Program, students have the opportunity to be apart
of art organizations.
Senior Studios can be acquired by application and are for advanced students enrolled in at least one credit hour of upper level
courses in the Art and Art History Program to work on their creative research safely
One of the most successful programs we have is the Post Undergraduate Assistantship. Senior graduating students can apply for a Post Undergraduate Assistantship for
the year following graduation.
