When possible we invite artists to the Printmaking Area to give a public lecture and create a new edition of prints with the assistance of students. These visits give students valuable hands on experience and the opportunity to interact with the artists during the project. Other visiters to the Art & Art History Department have included Lesley Dill (2014), Dominic Thorburn (2013), Jill Fitterer (2012), Drive by Press (2010) and Sue Coe (2009). Click on the Visiting Artists and Scholars page for a complete list of those who have lectured in the department.
