Zea Mays Printmaking is a studio, workshop, gallery, educational facility and research center dedicated to the safest and most sustainable printmaking practices available. We are continually researching exciting new techniques and products. We share this information through our workshops, consultations and private tutorials.
We offer workshops in green printmaking processes; access to our state-of-the-art studio; exhibitions; residencies; prints for sale and more.

The flat files at Zea Mays Printmaking house over 500 prints by member artists. They are available for exhibition and sale.
Artist Mentorship Program
The Art Practice Mentorship and Print Project Mentorship pair an artist with a faculty mentor for a personalized experience.
We offer unpaid internships to college students pursuing a degree in printmaking, recent college graduates or to those who have completed a non-academic course of study in printmaking.
Digital Exhibition: Figures
Not many members at Zea Mays work with the human figure. The following images, collected from the flat file, show that those printmakers who choose the figure as subject matter present it with great variety.
Detailed research conducted by our interns into a variety of new printmaking products and methods.
Zea Mays Printmaking is proud to present our newest portfolio of prints.
People in Print
People in Print is a series of conversations with artist members of Zea Mays Printmaking.
We offer a wide range of workshops for all levels, taught by experts in the field. Unless otherwise noted, workshops are for all levels. All workshop fees include materials. The workshops are taught in our wonderful new teaching studio that is on the ground floor of our building.
A group of artist members from Zea Mays Printmaking began an investigation into the health impacts of the printing plates we use. Substratum is a documentation of our investigation and hopefully a useful resource for other artist/printmakers and DIY practitioners.
