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.
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.
One-on-one instruction from our core faculty in technique, image development, establishing an artistic practice.
Our Residency Program provides an opportunity for artists to work in a cutting-edge studio, research center, educational institution and artist community. We strive to create an environment that is both professional and personal with great respect for the creative process of each artist.
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.
Detailed research conducted by our interns into a variety of new printmaking products and methods.
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.
