Visiting Artists and Printers
We are pleased to welcome distinguished visiting artists and master printers to our print studio for extended working residencies. This affords our students the opportunity to work alongside and learn from practitioners who are pushing the medium forward.
Throughout the year, we invite members of the community into our print studio for collaborative printmaking events. For Reclaim MLK Day, we had a great day working with the young artists and activists of Don't Shoot Portland! The kids created all of the artwork themselves, and we helped them burn screens and make prints.
We screen printed, and printed large woodblock prints on the Ray Trayle press to produce work with the kids for the Reclaim MLK Day Children's March.
