ABOUT THE STUDIO
The 1800-square foot studio is dedicated to printmaking students, and utilizes non-toxic processes and materials whenever possible. The studio features flat file storage; a laserjer printer; a desktop Mac with overhead projector; an exposure unit for photographic processes in intaglio, lithography and silkscreen; two lithography presses with dedicated ventilation systems; a library of lithography stones; a graining sink; three etching presses; a letterpress proofing press; screen printing stations and a vacuum table; a backlit washout booth; and ferric chloride for etching copper. Students have 24-hour access to the studio. Capacity enrollments for both individual and combined courses are limited to 16 students, and studio fees support the purchase of inks, modifiers, tools, cleaning supplies, and chemistry.
Susanna Crum, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts, has run the IU Southeast printmaking program since 2015. Along with Rodolfo Salgado, Susanna conducts community outreach, spreads knowledge of printmaking processes, and exhibits the work of over 35 artists via Calliope Arts Printmaking Studio and Gallery.
