Upcoming Mini-Residencies/Workshops at SOL PRINT STUDIOS

The spring is coming and we are open up for the workshops! We offer artists project-based, guided studio time in our print shop. Artist and printmakers Soledad Salamé and Randi Reiss-McCormick work individually with artists to create a strong body of work, offering enough guidance and freedom to enhance their creative identity and visual language. Our residencies are an opportunity for growth within your artistic practice; many of our artists have acquired new venues for exhibition with the portfolios they create in our classes.

These residencies are an immersive experience where all energies work to help the artist best develop their ideas in well-executed prints. The duration of the program is four days of intensive work and collaboration.
To sign up, contact us:
Soledad Salamé, Founder and Director, 443-414-6542
Randi Reiss-McCormack, 443-604-8236
