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.
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.
Printmaking in Havana
Here's the story of our incredible trip to Havana to teach polyester plate lithography at San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts. Visit our Cuba blog and read our story and see slideshows from this wonderful experience.
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.
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.
