Printmaking is a nexus, an intersecting point where all other disciplines of visual art may be investigated in tandem, where the fields of art and design converge, and where the past, present, and future of visual expression are simultaneously at play. Printmaking is rich with traditions and histories that are intertwined with the development of communication and culture. These same threads remain woven into the mesh of contemporary society and printmaking is a medium ripe with possibilities and potential for innovation within contemporary art.

SIU’s Printmaking program encourages experimentation, cross-disciplinary approaches, and hybrid processes, as well as an engagement of print within the larger arena of creative research and production. The program maintains an expansive and inclusive stance in educating artists, embracing new technologies as well as established techniques and conceptual contexts. As a result, our students acquire a critical awareness of the problems and possibilities for investigating, thinking, and problem solving in the 21st century.

The Printmaking area features numerous study options with facilities and equipment for a wide array of techniques including etching, lithography, silkscreen, relief, monoprint, collagraph, and papermaking, as well as significant digital capabilities. This range of curriculum allows students to gain skill and mastery of emerging technology as well as traditional techniques in the field of printmaking, equipping them with the tools necessary for a successful professional art practice and the capabilities to direct their own practice.


The Master of Fine Arts in Art with an emphasis in Printmaking offers students a comprehensive education that helps prepare them for careers as professional artists. The program has two major goals: 1) for students to learn the skills, creativity, critical awareness, and autonomy necessary for being a professional artist, while simultaneously, 2) gaining the skills and experience necessary to teach art at the college level. Students must be able to demonstrate a high level of ability in their area of emphasis, present a professional-level body of original artwork which reflects their ability to investigate concepts, issues and processes relevant to their studio practice, and be able to discuss this work critically. Students supplement their studio practice through graduate assistantships when possible, using them to complement and enhance their skills, understanding, and ability to communicate art issues. The outcome is that students are able to pursue a professional art career by exhibiting their work in appropriate venues, as well as pursuing grants and artist residencies and garnering critical acclaim for their work in the press. They are prepared to teach art at the college level in term or tenure-track positions as well as find other professional opportunities in a variety of cultural venues.
