This is off subject,however,you seem to be a person I can ask this question..
How did you get your printmaking job? Where do you teach? The reason I
ask,is last year I looked through all the job listings for Printmakers and
found two. My B.F.A. is in Printmaking and my M.F.A. is in Book Arts. How
did you go about to find employment??
I would love to teach,thought of going back just to get my fingers wet in
etching and litho and maybe go to CAA with new spirits...
I do teach a youth art program and we cover a scope of printmaking,bookarts
O inking community..
