    Techniques Offered

    An original print is an image that has been conceived by the artist as a print and executed solely as a print, usually in a numbered edition, and signed by the artist. Each editioned print is an original, printed from a plate, stone, screen, or block.

  • School Visits & Tours

    School Visits & Tours

    We offer free studio tours to groups of school students at the elementary, high school, college, and university level.


The purpose of our studio programming is to promote the development of, and excellence in, print media by providing studio facilities, which includes specialized equipment and tools, to enable artists to practice and produce their work, thereby increasing the affordability of, and accessibility to, resources that are otherwise rare or unavailable.
