Georgetown Art Studio Launched!

 From Washington Printmakers Gallery:

The Washington Print Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Georgetown Art Studio at the Washington Printmakers Gallery (classes and workshops for children, teenagers, and adults). As part of this program, the Washington Print Foundation will also be offering several scholarships to aspiring artists. Set to commence on August 28, this initiative aims to foster creativity, nurture talent, and empower individuals in the world of visual arts.

The Georgetown Art Studio is a new opportunity for artists of all ages and backgrounds to explore their artistic passions and develop essential skills under the guidance of accomplished instructors. The curriculum will encompass a wide range of art forms. There is of course a focus on printmaking and photography, but the courses also include drawing, painting, and mixed media, allowing participants to unleash their creativity and engage in various artistic expressions.

The Washington Print Foundation firmly believes in the transformative power of art and aims to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment for students to thrive. The Georgetown Art Studio will offer both beginner and intermediate-level classes, ensuring that artists at various skill levels can benefit from the program. The studio's courses will be designed to inspire and challenge students, encouraging them to push their artistic boundaries and discover new ways of self-expression.

As part of our commitment to accessibility and fostering artistic growth, the Washington Print Foundation will be offering a number of scholarships covering tuition fees for the chosen applicants, enabling them to participate in the Georgetown Art Studio without financial constraints.

"Art has the power to transcend boundaries and connect people on a profound level. We are thrilled to introduce the Georgetown Art Studio, providing a platform for aspiring artists to cultivate their skills and channel their creativity," said Ron Meick, President for the Washington Print Foundation. "Through the scholarships, we hope to create opportunities for talented individuals who may face financial barriers, fostering a diverse and inclusive artistic community in the heart of Washington, D.C."
