Print Club



The Newark Print Shop’s PRINT CLUB is a weekly open studio for artists of all levels to come and make art together. Inspired by a flier at the Newark Public Library for a print club from about 30 years ago, the club was created to revive the interest in the fine art of printmaking in the city of Newark.

PRINT CLUB began in January 2013, and quickly gained momentum as a community hub and true gathering around the printing press!
