Printing Partners

Book Arts Classes!


Upcoming Printing Partners Classes:
Locust Street Art
Fridays 4-6pm
September 22nd-November 17th, 2017


The WNY Book Arts Center’s Printing Partners is a collaborative program connecting the Center to students of all ages in the Buffalo community through educational outreach.

The program seeks to strengthen the region as a center for arts and culture by offering long-term arts instruction for children right in their very own neighborhoods. Through Printing Partners, WNYBAC provides an opportunity for all students to discover unique and historical modes of expression using old-school, analog technologies. 

In these drop-in “make-it & take-it” classes, participants learn a variety of Book Arts related processes: origami & hand-stitched bookmaking, monotype, letterpress & bubble printmaking, screen printing & and more! A new process is covered each class with the potential for longer weeks-long projects, and we welcome students to attend any and all that interest them. Participants are not required to come every week & no pre-registration is required. We welcome students of all ages. Sites rotate, so please check back frequently.

Printing Partners is generously funded in past & present by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, the City of Buffalo, the County of Erie, M&T Bank, and the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with the support of Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.
