Professor Joseph Velasquez Reviews
Prof: Joseph Velasquez / Summer 2021

Printmaking is definitely a course I'd put top of the list for non art majors. My only complaint is sometimes the project topics were oddly restrictive, but that might have just been me.
FAU has the printmaking department divided into two major chunks: Printmaking 1, which focuses on relief print, and Printmaking 2 which focuses on intaglio print. You won't have to buy any textbook, but you will need paper, and a set of printmaking tools
Joseph has a very intimidating sorta air, but he's one of the chillest professors I've met(unless you mess up the class brayers those things are expensive! Respect the brayer rules >:O) Be prepared for many dad jokes
Order your tools early! Some of the students in class were a few weeks behind because shipping tools got delayed, and make sure you buy a slip strop! Dull tools mean carving is a pain in the butt.
