Studio Rental

Artists at all stages of their career can rent studio time at St. Michael’s Printshop. Typically, artists will have experience and training in at least one form of printmaking if they are going to rent at SMP. For first-time renters of the printshop we offer a technical orientation and tour of the printshop, to help get you settled in. And you can ask staff during their office hours for help at any time.

In order to rent studio time at SMP, you must first purchase a 1 year membership for $30. Click here if you would like to purchase your membership right now by credit card.
