    Print-Media Beyond Academia

    Printmaking as an art discipline has been taught in different visual and fine arts academic programs around the world for hundreds of years. Thousands of printmaking students have graduated from different Art schools hoping to continue pursuing and fulfilling their artistic aspiration and passion, however, only handful of those, mostly university-affiliated, manage to do so. Obviously many factors may contribute to that phenomenon, however; the unavailability of printmaking equipment, which exist mainly in the educational institutions, the high cost of printmaking materials and the absences of the promotion and marketing of printmaking art, may be the most conspicuous factors that drive printmaking artists to quit. This research aims to explore new approaches that enable printmaking students to continue working in the real world after leaving the confinement of their educational institution and to investigate different possible solutions that may allow Printmaking Art and Artists to survive outside the Academic institution.

    The Non-Toxic Contemporary Approach to Teaching Printmaking Art

    Printmaking is a universally acknowledged and widely practiced discipline of art and art education that has historical roots going back several centuries. Unfortunately, most traditional printmaking techniques were invented hundreds of years before the concepts of occupational health & safety and environmental awareness were developed. Consequently, issues related to ecological conservation, health and safety have not been fully reconciled with the traditional practices of printmaking art. Meanwhile several printmaking educational programs especially in the US and Europe have already adapted to the contemporary Non-Toxic approach to teaching printmaking art, printmaking educational art programs in the Middle East are still grappling with the traditional concepts and teaching restrictions of ‚ÄúOriginal printmaking‚ÄĚ. This research investigates different health and ecological aspects related to teaching traditional printmaking techniques, and suggests other relevant Non-Toxic alternatives.
