This is a view of the intaglio and relief section of the undergraduate printmaking studio in the Department of Art and Design. The printmaking area has an internationally recognized program, which is supported by an outstanding studio that enables students focusing in both fine arts and design to engage in high calibre creative research. In addition to the facility depicted in this panorama, the printmaking area has additional facilities focused in lithography, silkscreen, letterpress, as well as new digital media. Alongside of this this, there is a separate studio for graduate students in printmaking.
The Printmaking Studio is located inside the Fine Arts Building (FAB) on the North Campus of the University of Alberta. FAB is also home to a number of other studios including Painting, Sculpture, and Visual Communication Design.
The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
