GVSU Art and Design


Through a sequence of six courses, students explore the expressive, descriptive, and conceptual potential of printed artmaking in today’s world. 

A range of methods is introduced at the beginning level including intaglio, relief, digital, and screenprinting. In the intermediate level courses students work to develop a personal approach to the medium as they learn autographic, photo-based methods, as well as complex color and layering processes. Majors are encouraged to take charge of their personal artistic direction as they advance through these courses. A student’s articulation of ideas and the clarity of communication become the central measures of one’s achievement.

Students may pursue a BA or BS in Art Education or a BFA in Studio Art in this emphasis.
