Studio Rental

One of the key ways we support Printmakers is by providing the space and equipment needed for them to create their artwork. Our studios can accommodate the entire spectrum of fine art printmaking including intaglio, lithography, monotype, silkscreen, woodblock and relief printing.

(Only CCP Members may rent our Printmaking Studios for independent use. Join or renew your membership here.)
