The Book Arts and Printmaking MFA program at University of the Arts (UArts) consists of an interdisciplinary curriculum committed to facilitating the exploration of the relationship between image and text, material and process, and the vast potential in the multiple.
Students develop contemporary studio practices that are uniquely grounded at the intersection of printmaking, book arts, and papermaking. The program champions the union of the head and the hand, and of the technical and the conceptual, promoting critical contemporary discourse while providing an understanding of historic precedents in the disciplines of paper, book, and print. Moreover, it advances the practice of new media and digital technologies.
Masterclasses and critiques conducted by renowned professionals in the field take place annually. Among the roster are Julie Chen, Erin Zona, Daniel Kelm, Karen Kunc, Julia Miller, Mark Thomas Gibson, Judith Brodsky, Betty Bright, Mindell Dubansky, Lesley Dill, Ruth Fine, Johanna Drucker, and Willie Cole.
Located in Center City Philadelphia, the program takes advantage of the city’s resources through visits to museums and special collections, off-campus courses, and internships. Our accomplished faculty comprises professionals in their field, and their work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. UArts alumni are a diverse group who excel in careers in museums and nonprofits, independent studios, conservation labs, universities, and publishing.
