Our Mission

We drive innovation in printmaking and photography through artist residency, education, and exhibitions.

Our Programs

Artist Residency:

S23 is the only printmaking workshop in Central Virginia that sustains a community of working artists through 24-hour access to a fully-equipped printmaking studio. S23 facilities support traditional printmaking techniques, including intaglio, relief, lithography, and screen printing, as well as digital printing. S23 is also home to the only open-access Communal Darkroom for black and white photography in Richmond. By providing artists with an affordable, professional and supportive workspace, S23 enables printmakers to explore and cultivate experimental, contemporary work and engage in artistic dialogue with fellow artists in the Richmond community. For more information visit the Artist Residency page and/or contact Ashley Hawkins, Executive Director, ashley@printrva.org.

Classes:

Our classes offer working artists as well as beginners with hands-on, intensive instruction in various printmaking techniques. S23 ensures that our workshops are affordable and welcoming to learners of all levels. Topics range from Super 8mm film making to photolithography, from black and white photography to intaglio, from zine-making to experimental screen printing. S23 classes are taught by established artists from the Richmond community who bring their knowledge, expertise, and innovative approaches in the printmaking medium to the classroom environment. S23 also offers Field Trips and Educational Tours for schools and nonprofit organizations. For more information visit the Classes Page.

Internships:

Studio Two Three interns learn critical hands-on experience and resume-building skills by working in all aspects of S23’s operations, including gallery administration and installation, event planning, educational programming, fundraising and community outreach, and nonprofit administration. We believe this program is critical in developing both artistic and administrative skills in the next generation of Richmond artists. S23 interns have gone on to teach S23 adult classes and Second Saturday workshops, coordinate educational programming, and pursue arts administration careers.
