The Project Shop is a local resource for makers and artists interested in exploring translation of ideas to images with printed matter.

Our goals include:

  • keeping the tradecraft of traditional printmaking alive by facilitating access to equipment, exploring experimentation, and relevant modern applications of print as creative expression.

  • celebrating the power of print as a tool for sharing ideas, impacting awareness and creating beauty.

  • facilitating creative experiences for all regardless of experience or access.

our Service Projects 

{raising funds and awareness}

*Service-learning is an educational approach that combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs.-Wikipedia

These projects are amazing opportunities for you to learn printmaking and practical production skills while raising funds and awareness for a non-profit or social cause of your choosing.

  • Student Service Projects. Each young artist dives into the design development process in collaboration with Project Shop artists to help translate their ideas to image.  Various printmaking techniques are explored and upon selecting the best application for the students vision we head into production. Students are involved in every step of the process to produce their limited run of print goods. All proceeds from sales are donated.

  • Public Service Projects. Anyone with an idea is welcome to submit their project. Accepted projects are developed in collaboration with the Project Shop artists. Production is carried out in a workshop setting lead by an artist teaching each participant printmaking techniques. Community workshops are hosted at the shop for public particpants who pay a small fee for the opportunity to learn printmaking and production skills while giving back to the community.  All proceeds from product sales are donated.

Purchase artist designed and printed goods that promote social causes.

All ideas welcome!

our CSA

{Community Supported Art}

We are curating a growing collection of amazing designs created and hand-printed at The Project Shop. Featured artists collaborate with Shop artists to develop, produce and deliver an outstanding edition. Artists are taught new techniques and offered the opportunity to stretch outside their comfort zones. Your support allows us to empower these young, emerging and curious artists to share their voices through tangible and quality limited edition print goods.

With your support we are able to encourage the featured artist to truly express themselves without constraints or pressures from commercial markets. As with a food based CSA delivery you might not love every item like eggplant but we are pretty sure you know someone who does.
CURRENT: Takeo Hiromitsu’s CSA Wear it. Art Shirt
“I’ve learned as much about screen printing as I have learned about myself through this process. When to be soft and when to be strong. To practice patience when things don’t go as planned and to be persistent. I have to leave ego at the door and come in as a child ready to play and learn.” Vanessa Porras – Recent Featured Artist
