The Smith College Print Workshop is an annual program that brings prominent visual artists and master printers to the studio classroom to collaborate on a limited-edition print. Participants have the rare opportunity to see art being made.
Students and the general public may observe both the creative process of a wide variety of nationally known artists and the complex give-and-take between artist and master printer. In addition to observing the development of a print over the course of several days, students are given an invaluable opportunity to assist with the making of a print.
A limited number of prints from each workshop is made available for sale, with proceeds funding future workshops. Please contact the Museum Shop for more information.
