Printmaking offers unique possibilities as an art form. The printmaking studio offers classes in monoprint, drypoint, linoleum block printing, woodcuts, screenprinting, gelatin prints and more. The studio is the home of a vibrant printmaking community. Our print group meets monthly, and visiting artists share their techniques and insights on a regular basis. Students can take advantage of Open Studio rental pending completion of Introduction to Printmaking or certification by the studio coordinator.
