Best Printmaking Programs Comparison


Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Printmaking normally covers only the process of creating prints that have an element of originality, rather than just being a photographic reproduction of a painting. Except in the case of monotyping, the process is capable of producing multiples of a same piece, which is called a print. Each print produced is not considered a "copy" but rather is considered an "original".(read more at wiki) Here we introduce best colleges in the field of printmaking where Rhode Island School of Design is ranked top and University of Wisconsin-Madison is positioned on second place.

We briefly compare those top colleges with various factors such as tuition, admission, graduation, enrolment, and more. The full comparison for each factors with tables and charts is described at printmaking colleges comparison page.
