40th Anniversary Celebrations

St. Michael’s Printshop is an artist-run print studio which provides professional fine art printmaking facilities for established and emerging artists. A lure for printmakers who crave a space in which to create art surrounded by the extraordinary natural landscape of the North Atlantic, the Printshop also attracts visuals artists who wish to explore printmaking as a new medium for the first time through workshops with local and visiting printmakers.

“Without any prior printmaking experience or formal training as an artist, I opted to take part in an SMPS workshop. I was delighted to find that the environment and instructional approach were perfectly developed to accommodate any skill level. The workshop was outstanding – in addition to learning many new techniques, I also gained a community with whom I can share ideas.”

-M.R.

 

“All the workshops I have taken at St. Michael’s have been a great experience. Very informative, well organized and interesting! Mike Connolly is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. Just the right balance of instruction and hands on practice.”

We had the most fun, created some beautiful art, and taught some people a thing or two about printmaking. Check out our new event page to learn more about the event, check out the print we created, and see more photos from the event!             …………………………………………………………………………………………………….
