Self Help Graphics & Art is proud to host our biennial Printmaking Summit April 18-20, 2019 with demonstrations, workshops, panel discussions and artist talks focused on the role printmaking in today’s creative economy for students, emerging artists and skilled national printmakers. Admission to the summit is $25.00 (3-day pass) or $15.00 for students with a valid I.D. (3-day pass).

Participants of this three-day networking and skill-building event will learn about new technologies and green practices in printmaking, participate in demonstrations led by artists and an art exchange program, portfolio reviews, meet art supply vendors, among other activities.
