Re: alt process at the university level
There is a good concentration in Philadelphia which is a cool thing!
In addition to already mentioned names such as Martha Madigan at Tyler as well as Alida Fish and Sarah Van Keuren at University of Arts, now we have Andrea Modica at Drexel who teaches pt/pd.
Though I am not sure how extensive they are at each school, I know about the program at University of Arts with Sarah as I have been invited to show my work. They offer two sessions in introductory as well as advanced. They have in a halftone imagesetter in graphic design department, so students utilize it a lot.
Scott McMahon who was a student of Sarah is also teaching in the area. Though he is not teaching alt processes yet, he is proposing a class at University of Pennsylvania which is a new addition to their program.
We just had a group of students from Moore Colloge of Art and Design with James Johnson visited our studio to see the collotype exhibit this morning. I was happy to hear that they do offer alt process classes. They are hoping to add Platinum/palladium session in the near future.
At Project Basho, we are working closely with schools to bring any alternative processes we offer to these schools at their request. We hope to come to materialize a couple of these by the end of year.
We are working on expanding the range of offering by adding photogravure and tri-color gum this summer and fall at our studio. Hopefully these people and programs will make Philadelphia great environment to engage in various historical processes.
