The Printmaking studios are perhaps the only studios at Teachers College that can be said to still be in their original use. Home to traditional processes such as stone lithography, aquatint, etching, block printing, and screen printing, in recent years the Printmaking studios have increasingly become a hub of new technologies and cross-medium interaction with other spaces in the Art & Art Ed program. Students may travel across the hall to the Thingspace laser cutter to etch designs into wood blocks for printing, or to the Myers Media Art Studio to print new transparencies for screen printing.
Overseen by Mahbobe Ghods, Printmaking at TC is designed to be inclusive to both new and experienced artists alike. Serving a significant number of out-of-program students, Ghods firmly believes that anyone can learn and benefit from becoming part of what she calls the "process of creativity". Ghods finds that educators of all kinds will often incorporate ideas from class back into their own curricular practices, and that while not every individual is destined to be a "master chef" in printmaking, everyone can "at least cook something".
