Two students looking at prints.

Printmaking at RISD supports your creative development as you engage in visual expression via intaglio, lithography, screenprint, relief and related photo-processes. Both undergraduate and graduate majors work toward a focused personal direction by mastering traditional and contemporary techniques, including digital and alternative print methods.


After RISD, Printmaking majors go in many different directions, often pursuing interests they’ve defined as students. Many alumni become practicing fine artists who exhibit their work all over the world. Others make an impact on the art world by running galleries, curating shows, writing art criticism, teaching, launching small startups and more.
