Printmaking + Book Arts

Philly is in the middle of a creative boom. It’s perfect for a young artist. Because it’s so affordable, everyone who moved to Brooklyn in the 90s is moving here now, so hurry up!

The best thing about being a printmaker at UArts is access to tools and mostly the close relationships developed with the printmaking staff.  The attention to your work and path feels more personalized as the instructors mentor you and inform you about possible opportunities outside of school.

Everyone at Uarts is approachable and always accessible if you need guidance or resources. My advice to students thinking about coming to UArts, and thinking about being a printmaker, is to take advantage of any professional opportunities to exhibit or collaborate with other people.
