The Art of Printmaking is much more than just making a copy of a piece of artwork. Printmaking is about the searching, learning, and experimentation with different techniques and colors that allows the artist to be able to take multiple approaches to a single image. This is the true enjoyment of printmaking that is studied at the University of South Alabama. 

The studio is equipped with two Brand etching presses, and a Show Card Proofing Press. Currently there are Printmaking classes for beginners serving as introductions to Relief, Etching, and Silkscreen. South also offers Intermediate Printmaking, which usually explores color applications and techniques beyond intro level. The Advanced Printmaking classes serve to build a portfolio of images. Printmaking may be taken as a major concentration.
