Greetings from Calliope Arts!

Thanks to everyone who made it to our Open House and Woodcut Workshop. Since then, we've hosted a collaborative relief printing event, given several studio tours, and welcomed our first studio member and a summer intern to the shop. Our facilities for intaglio, relief, and monotype are up and running,
and we're putting the finishing touches on screen printing and plate lithography. Check out our policies to learn more about studio membership, private consultations, and assistance for special printing projects.

Rudy and I look forward to sharing the space with you. Please contact us if you'd like to schedule a time to see the studio, or if you have any questions.

Registration is open for three printmaking classes in July-August. We'd love to see you there!

This workshop is ideal for artists and beginners who love to draw and paint.  Direct and expressive, Monotype combines the radiant layers of prints with the spontaneity of painting.

Please note: For the first day of class, please bring with you an image that is 15" x 20" in dimensions (either horizontal or vertical orientation will work) - this could be a drawing by hand, or a relatively simple collage of photographs, photocopies, etc. This image will be the subject matter for your first monotype images.
