Accepting Applications for the MFA in Studio Art with Concentration in Printmaking

Current MFA Candidates (clockwise from top left): Jon Vogt, Kayla Seedig, David Villegas, 
Luke Ball, Preston Bradley, Melody Vaughan, and Jessie Barnes
The MFA program at the University of North Texas is accepting applications to begin course work in Fall 2015.  The printmaking area is made up of seven MFA printmaking candidates and thirty-five BFA undergraduates from a variety of artistic and geographic backgrounds.

The MFA in Printmaking at the University of North Texas offers a broad and intensive experience for serious artists engaging printmaking processes and concepts.  As artists, we are drawn to printmaking as a primary form of expression with many facets.  MFA Printmaking candidates come from a range of conceptual, technical, and formal interests.  The program aims to expand and focus these while increasing the individual’s professional experience through exhibitions, exposure to visiting artists, print media conferences, portfolio exchanges, printmaking workshops and other professional activities.  The UNT campus offers exceptional professional research resources, and the Dallas/ Fort Worth area offers additional resources such as world-class art museums, contemporary art galleries, and other cultural activities.

We have an inclusive and expansive focus on printmaking in our MFA program.  We are focused on creating the opportunity for artists to learn traditional media and processes while experimenting and expanding beyond media conventions.  Each graduate student will determine the scope of creative his/her creative research.   We currently have students who work in screenprint, various forms of intaglio, various forms of lithography, digital prints, various forms of relief prints, sculptural prints, artist’s books, installation, performance, and conceptual extensions of print processes in other media.  Graduate print courses focus on idea/concept-building, contextual awareness, and professional development.

*Deadline for Priority Consideration is January 5, 2015*  (for enrolling in Fall 2015).
Late applications will be reviewed for acceptance until mid February, but with fewer opportunities for Scholarships and Graduate Assistantships.
