Program Information

School: OCAD University
Faculty: Faculty of Art
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Printmaking
Description: The Printmaking curriculum emphasizes an exploration of the endless creative and technical possibilities in this traditional art form. You are introduced to five primary processes: etching, lithography, relief, screen-printing, paper-making. In Printmaking, you may specialize or work with any number of techniques to develop innovative works in bookbinding, photo-etching or digital processes with text, type and image composition. First, you learn the basics of ink and colour-printing and how to produce images on screens. You then embark on large, complex projects while developing your own artistic voice. In the final year, you create a self-directed independent body of work using single or multidisciplinary processes. As a Printmaking graduate, you can focus on a studio practice, produce and curate printmaking exhibitions, design book-works, or pursue a future as an educator, commercial designer, or arts administrator.
