Printmaking in the BYU Department of Art is seen more as a means of artistic expression rather than a meticulous technical process for mass-producing pictorial objects. Students are encouraged to first attain proficiency with a variety of print mechanisms and then develop conceptual reinterpretations of the ever-expanding medium. It is an objective of the print area to cultivate a more self-initiated approach that innovates and redraws the boundaries of the contemporary print. This objective is enhanced by: one-on-one attention and participation in individual and group critiques, access to the print collections at the BYU Museum of Art, visiting artist lectures and demonstrations, occasions to participate in collaborative exchange portfolios, and opportunities to participate in group activities that stimulate connections with other disciplines.
