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.” V.M.

AROUND THE SHOP There have been many new initiatives around SMP the past few months, including making the Studio a safer, less toxic place to work. Along with our big clean up this past year, we are cleaning up our act and are gradually eliminating some of our more toxic solvents. Estisol, a coconut based product, is going to replace many solvents used in the clean-up and lithography processes. Studio Manager, Mike Connolly is going to be offering seminars on how to use this product throughout the year, so keep checking back to see when the next one will take place.   Thanks to:   CanadaCouncil_logo_webnlac_logo_web Untitled-1
