UMassD CVPA Printmaking


A minor in printmaking provides you with the aesthetic, technical, and intellectual training necessary to succeed in the professional art world.

The minor offers professional, studio-based training in printmaking through a wide spectrum of course offerings such as:

  • silkscreen
  • etching
  • lithography
  • relief
  • monotype
  • photo processes

You'll work in our large printmaking studios, with state-of-the-art facilities dedicated to the different printmaking processes. You'll develop cross-disciplinary sensitivity—with the opportunity to combine printmaking with painting, drawing, photography, digital media, textiles, and other disciplines in contemporary art making. You'll also be able to explore fields across the university, such as business, engineering, and science.

For the printmaking minor, you'll complete 18 credits, consisting of 12-15 credits in studio courses and one or two upper-level independent study courses in printmaking.
