Printmaking

Ball State offers courses of study in four kinds of printmaking: intaglio, lithography, relief, and serigraphy. Courses in these techniques of printmaking present a basic understanding of the media as well as methods to take advantage of the versatility of the processes. Students are expected to go beyond mere technical proficiency and must use the processes effectively to express innovative and personal ideas.

While personal means of creative expression such as drawing and painting are encouraged to create the print images when appropriate, these ideas are nurtured and developed by newer contemporary means, including photographic and digital technologies.
