Applications for the Printmaking Education Programme are now OPEN!


Learn printmaking from the printmaking experts and master printers at Artist Proof Studio. Our printmaking programmes are aimed at harnessing your creativity, challenging your potential and creative thinking through printmaking. You will learn how to effectively communicate your ideas and sharpen your creative thinking through the various printmaking techniques, drawing and conceptual studies.  

Artist Proof Studio has been subsidising young artists from different communities for over 30 years. Through fundraising and partnerships we have built over the years, we make it possible for our students to realise and pursue their dream of becoming professional artists.
