    Nestled in the Twin Cities, Hamline is surrounded by a thriving art community.

There are countless opportunities to act, sing, dance, and explore the rich cultural environment.

    Malala YousafzaiIntaglio print by current Studio Art major, Rachel Todd, in honor of Malala Yousafzai receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Malala Yousafzai is the youngest person to ever win a Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the prize for her work as an advocate for the educational rights of children. She has continued her brave work despite the danger and threats to her young life.

    Rachel has created this portrait of Malala using the intaglio printmaking processes she has learned in her Studio Art courses. She engraved the image into a sheet of metal with hand tools and dipped it in an acid bath before coating it with ink and transferring the image onto paper.
