OUTREACH

Atlanta Printmakers Studio conducts programs outside of the studio for both children and adults. This outreach promotes the art of printmaking and educates the broader community about various printmaking techniques. We partner with the site sponser to develop a program that suits their particular interests and audience.

We have provided free children’s art activities at community art festivals and have offered a variety of workshops and demonstrations at community centers like Southwest Art Center, Hammonds House Museum and the Mechanicsville Branch of the Fulton County Library. These programs are staffed by APS instructors and volunteers, and have been supported in part by the Fulton County Arts Council, the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, and the LUBO Fund.

Children's Printmaking Booth at Festivals
Guidance by Atlanta Printmakers Studio instructors is provided to help children make colorful monoprints, printed on paper from acrylic plates. They use stamps, stencils and textural items, along with colored ink, all provided at the booth. When the plate is ready it is printed using our portable table top press and the children lift their print off the plate. The prints are hung up to dry, and then they take home an original print they made themselves.

Printmaking in Schools
As part of our education outreach, APS is developing a variety of printmaking workshops for Atlanta area schools K-12. Our lesson plans will include a wide range of techniques for all ages and skill levels. Our teachers are professional printmakers who will present a little bit of art history, educate students about printmaking, do a demonstration, and lead the students in their own artmaking. We can customize the content to make connections with other subjects the students are studying, like a specific culture or historic event. Fees vary.
