Our program allows admittance of one or two applicants each year and typically keeps a cohort of 2-4 students in total. This allows for more focused studio time and feedback from advisors, while also allowing for stand-alone teaching opportunities and technical assistantships. We aim to facilitate the growth of each new cohort through engaging dialog that is inclusive, rigorous, and insightful. We encourage a diversity of applicants from various backgrounds.
Graduate students are given large semi-private studio space across the hall from the main communal studio during their three years in the program & will have the opportunity to receive both technical & teaching assistantships throughout their time at CSU. The graduate studio area has its own lithographic press donated by the estate of Barbara Tisserat, as well as an intaglio press & flat file storage for all graduate students. Graduate students have 24-hour key access to the main printmaking studio.
