The Drive By Press Printmaking Workshop is a two-week studio art course that focuses on advanced techniques and practices in all printmaking disciplines.
Instructor Joseph Valasquez developed the workshop as a forum to share with students some of the insider knowledge and unique methods he's gleaned from visiting hundreds of professional and academic printshops during his seven years of touring with Drive By Press. Joining him this year will be printmaking legend John Hancock, OU Professor Curtis Jones, and surprise guest artists from around the country.
This year's workshop will culminate with a public steamroller printing event featuring oversized woodblocks created by workshop participants.

Road to Ruscha was a collaborative, multidisciplinary, conceptual art project inspired by Edward Ruscha’s painting, No Man’s Land, and the fiftieth anniversary of the landmark book, Twentysix Gasoline Stations. The central element of the project was an actual road trip, from Oklahoma City to Los Angeles following in reverse order Ruscha’s original trips of 1962. Primary participants included students and faculty from the University of Oklahoma representing diverse fields of study such as art, art history, architecture, and geography. The trip took place May 15th through 24th.
