A student examines a print

For nearly 50 years, The University of Iowa's printmaking program has ranked among the best in the country. From class discussions of the history of printmaking to instruction in the making of prints, emphasis is placed on teaching students about significant historical print concepts and helping them discover new ways of adding to the printmaking tradition. Students also learn about artistic self-analysis through group and individual critiques. Actual masterworks on paper are accessible through a comprehensive museum collection of prints including all techniques and all periods of art history.
