Studio Squared is the Museum's series of informal art-making workshops aimed at making a wide range of studio practices accessible to adult audiences. Each workshop focuses on a particular theme and creative process inspired by our exhibitions and explores methods of creative production through an experiential approach.

Inspired by the printmaking practices exhibited in Circa 1970, this Studio Squared invites visitors to experiment with pronto plate lithography, an immediate and effective method for producing hand-printed work. Presented in partnership with the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (RBPMW), a team of skilled teaching artists will demonstrate the essential components of pronto plate lithography and guide participants through the production of their own 6" x 9" prints!

EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop (RBPMW) is a co-operative printmaking workspace that provides professional-quality printmaking facilities to artists and printmakers of every skill level. Continuing Robert Blackburn's vision of a welcoming and open creative environment, RBPMW is committed to fostering a diverse artistic community working in an environment that embraces technical and aesthetic exploration, innovation and collaboration.
