The mission of the Atlanta Printmakers Studio is to nurture the practice of printmaking as an original art form among professional artists and anyone who wants to learn. APS exists to provide studio space and equipment for artist renters and offers community outreach through classes, workshops and exhibitions in order to enhance the understanding of and appreciation for fine art printmaking.
Atlanta Printmakers Studio (APS) was founded in 2005 to promote the fine art of printmaking by offering access to a well-equipped studio and diverse educational programs that foster the development of printmaking as a vibrant and progressive art form. On November 1, 2006, our studio near downtown Atlanta opened for printmaking. Besides activity in the studio, APS has developed a continuing calendar of outreach events to serve the local community. We have received support for our programs from the Fulton County Arts Council, the Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs, Georgia Council for the Arts, the LUBO Fund, and the Sara Giles Moore Foundation. We welcome all artists and the general public to join us in creating, learning about, and collecting fine art prints.
