Printmaking Open Studio

Printmaking Open Studio

Please note: To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community, some indoor facilities and outdoor recreational spaces may be closed or have modified access until further notice. 

The Irvine Fine Arts Center continues to be closed to the public at large until further notice, and an opening date has not been determined. Due to current state guidelines, exhibitions are closed to the public. Modified recreational programming will be available to the community, and is available for registration at yourirvine.org

Irvine outdoor park spaces remain open for passive use by individuals within the same household, while wearing a face covering and maintaining physical distance from others outside of their household. Playgrounds are open. No gatherings, no interaction between households, and no drop-in use for games, scrimmages, practices, or organized play of any kind. Learn more at the City Facility Updates webpage.

 


 

The Printmaking Studio is equipped for traditional printmaking techniques.  Various etching presses, including a 36x72 inch manual Ettan press, outfit the studio and allow for print techniques and processes such as intaglio, relief, collagraph, and monoprint.

A UV exposure unit for alternative photo and printmaking processes is also available. Reservation required.

Whether you have a passion for letterpress or affection for relief, let our modest studio accommodate your creative appetite with this century old tradition!

Previous studio experience and closed toe shoes are required. Participants must be 18 years or older.  For more information please call the Irvine Fine Arts Center front desk: 949-724-6880.
