Artist Mentorship Program
We are now accepting applications for the 2016-17 Artist Mentorship Programs. The Art Practice Mentorship and Print Project Mentorship pair an artist with a faculty mentor for a personalized experience.
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.
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.
