The Print Fellows will assist the studio coordinator in the production of the center’s and department’s printed promotional materials, the center’s publications, any workshop or class-related printing, and in performing some aspects of general studio maintenance. The fellow will receive training in prepress production, press operation (both offset and letterpress), and other aspects of print production. We require the fellow to make a three-semester commitment for at least twelve hours a week for 40 weeks.
This fellowship will pay the standard school graduate student hourly rate through payroll, based on the number of hours worked.
This year, we will be awarding two Print Fellowships. Interested applicants should submit a letter of intent, a cv, and the names and contact information for two references from former or current employers. Knowledge of photoshop, page layout software, and digital imaging is a distinct advantage.
