Program Description

Hybrid Processes: Print/Design in the Netherlands 

This creative, hybrid program will be lead by Scott Ludwig and Tricia Treacy from the Department of Art and will integrate a variety of experiences that intersect print and design media in the Netherlands.

The core program will take place in Amsterdam, a vibrant center of Dutch design and creative culture. Excursions will tentatively be arranged throughout Amsterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, Utrecht, and Eindhoven. Amsterdam itself is home to copious, world-class museums, such as the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, Van Gogh and Hermitage Museums and numerous historical sites, galleries, artist/design studios. 

Studio-based, hand-on workshops will be scheduled at the Amsterdam Grafisch Atelier (AGA Lab), Grafisch Werkcentrum Amsterdam (GWA), where students will be introduced to a variety of print/designed based media including hand-press printed intaglio/relief, letterpress, digital/risograph printing, and artists books. Workshops will be directed in collaboration with program leaders and AGA/GWA staff, master printers and visiting artists. Students will generate a wide range of creative, print-based, fine art/design work and collaborate on prints, zines and a final, culminating book design project.

This is a specialized program for BFA Studio Art/Printmaking and BFA Graphic Design students and is closed to other students. Studio Art and Graphic Design students that interested in this program should contact the program leaders for additional information.
