The printmaking program at Winthrop is designed around a thorough technical education in the traditional techniques of etching, lithography and the relief processes of woodcut and linocut. This, combined with a challenging questioning environment towards subject-matter and its relevance to contemporary art and the student's personal interests, is founded on strong drawing skills. Less traditional techniques (monotype, image-transfer with solvents, screenprinting) supplement the program. Image-text relationship and the ideas sequential imagery are also investigated. Printmaking involves techniques which are utilized in both the fine-art and commercial-industrial worlds. It is not surprising, therefore, that students have gone on to work in a variety of fields, including commercial screenprinting, digital imaging, graphic design, as exhibiting fine artists and teachers in both high school and in higher education.
