The Printmaking Program at TAMUCC focuses comprehensive studio practice toward BFA and MFA degrees with courses in intaglio, lithography, relief, screenprint and monotype. Students develop a strong foundation in traditional printmaking within the context of contemporary aesthetics, and are presented with an array of creative options.  The print area encourages interdisciplinary research within realms of sculptural, installation-based, experimental, collaborative and digital applications. Students are acquainted with the expansive function printmaking plays in disseminating information – from addressing global themes, to its role in literature, advertising, popular culture, fashion, social networking, etc. This idea speaks to the power of the multiple and its ability to transcend the traditional, editioned print or two-dimensional surface.  

In addition to promoting innovative and professional attitudes towards the creation and dissemination of work, our studio prides itself as an inclusive and collaborative learning environment, acquainting students with a diverse range of ideas through an active visiting artist program, attendance at workshops and conferences, communal engagement and cultural opportunities beyond the realm of printmaking and the visual arts.

Our students participate in numerous print-related activities in Houston and Austin, and our student print organization Full Court Press assists an international cast of visiting artists in publishing works, and consistently engages the Corpus Christi community by hosting symposiums and events such as the annual Ink Slingers’ Ball.
