For many of our students, print is about making images that ultimately question the reasons why we make images.
Despite the potential of digital imaging, our students continue to engage with the materiality of image-making through print processes such as etching and screen print, as well as through drawing and photography. Throughout the course they are encouraged to explore and experiment with these long-established methodologies alongside digital technologies, testing contemporary and expanded notions of print as they do so. This fusion of traditional and new technologies, the symbiosis of analogue and digital, provides for a dynamic and challenging creative space.
With an equal emphasis on the acquisition of autographic ability and conceptual enquiry, our students develop an independent studio practice that draws from daily experience and current social, cultural and political issues.
At all times, ideas remain influenced by print’s historical legacy as a powerful means of communication.
