Ink It Up! will be an inspiring day of print demonstrations, presentations, panel discussions and open portfolios. Our symposium will showcase current trends in printmaking as well as future innovations.

Demonstrators include PAAC’s artistic staff and visiting artists. Topics include:
Hydrographic Immersion Printing
Natural Dye Printmaking

Presentations and Panel Discussion
Our panel discussion will look at how printmaking is evolving: from ‘printstallation’ or print-based installation art, to approaching printmaking from a multidisciplinary angle.

Open Portfolios
A showcase of printmaker’s work from DC metro area colleges and universities, as well as neighboring print shops. Participants will be displaying original prints and providing information regarding their respective print program.
