The Atlanta Printmakers Studio (APS) was established to support the fine art of printmaking in metro Atlanta. Founders envisioned an organization that would provide a well-equipped printmaking studio for local artists as well as raise the awareness of printmaking as an art form. In August 2005 the incorporation papers were signed and in December 2006 APS’s 501c3 non-profit status was approved – Atlanta Printmakers Studio was founded.
Local art centers, universities, and galleries made available their facilities and galleries for workshops and exhibits as APS built membership and formed the organization. During the first year APS received many generous equipment donations. However, we needed of a permanent home. After many months of looking at potential studio space APS moved into the Metropolitan Warehouse complex. The doors opened in November 2006 near downtown Atlanta, and classes began in January 2007. Over the years APS has become a vital printmaking resource for artists, collectors, college students and children.
