Through the William Wondriska Endowment, the Visual Communication Design Department invites internationally known visual communicators to campus each year to lecture on a variety of topics and to critique student work.
Thanks to the generosity of the trustees and friends of the Hartford Art School, visiting artist and designer workshops enhance our coursework. Students assist master artists and work on prints, sculptures, or ceramic installations, and learn firsthand the efforts and skills required.
Recent participants include:Edwin Utermohlen
The nationally recognized Hartford Art School Print Workshop provides our students the opportunity to observe artists and printers collaborating to create original editions of prints, and sometimes to participate in their production. We have hosted major collaborations between artists and master printers in our facilities yearly since 1978.
