March Workshop Theme- Brain Food!
Instructor: Sophie Sanders
This month’s workshop is all about the brain and foods that help the brain grow and develop! This two hour workshop will provide you with the opportunity to experiment with screen printing and relief printmaking to represent emotions, dreams, and other thoughts inside the brain. Families can work together to create a map of the brain for a future exhibit at Second State Press. Each participant will walk away with a print that they created. Suitable for ages 5 & up.
Quarter Sheet Challenge Artist: Leslie A. Grossman
Leslie A. Grossman has accepted the Second State Press Quarter Sheet Challenge! Her prints will be on view for the month of March.
“Transfer” is a perfect example of how I approach printmaking – with a slightly tongue-in-cheek commentary on the one-off. It’s also evidence of my interest in the ways one material/thing communicates with or impacts another; and how printmaking – in the most rudimentary sense – is simply a transfer of information.
Each month we will feature a new artist in this on going exhibition series. The one requirement? Prints must be quarter sheet prints (15″ x 11″). Email email@example.com for more information.
Time to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty!
SSP will be offering NEW classes in Monotype, Quick & Dirty Screen Printing, and Lithography this spring!

Member Shop Orientations Every Second Thursday
It’s always difficult to start in a new shop and get your printing flow. Different equipment, new people, and where the heck is the tarleton anyway?! SSP wants to make it easier for you to get started and get printing. Every Second Thursday, Second State Press we will hold shop orientations for members. All are welcome to attend each month.
Join us 6-9 PM to get a tour of the shop, have your printing questions answered, and meet other members.
