COMMUNITY PRINT SHOP


We make [art] work.

Studio Two Three (S23) is Central Virginia’s only community printmaking workshop. We provide established and aspiring artists and craftspeople with studio facilities, education, artist residency, and open doors.  We offer 24/7 access to a printmaking shop, darkroom, digital lab, communal workspace, and individual studios to support production, creative practice, and discourse.  We are professionals, amateurs, teachers and students.

S23 is an energizing incubator for the current generation and the next one, keeping our creative community robust and evolving, producing the goods and services that move through our city’s galleries, businesses, schools, festivals, homes, and life.

OUR PROGRAMS


Artist Residents have 24/7 access to the studio. We have facilities for etching, relief, lithography, and screen printing, digital printing, and a black and white darkroom. Artist Residents have access to all printmaking equipment, conference and lounge spaces, a kitchenette, wireless internet, darkroom, and a community of fellow artists and craftspeople. For more information visit the Use the Studio page.

Our workshops are affordable and welcoming to learners of all levels. Topics range from Super 8mm filmmaking to photolitho, black and white photography to intaglio, zine-making to experimental screen printing. Our instructors are established artists who bring their knowledge, expertise, and innovative approaches to the classroom. We also offer Field Trips & Tours for schools and nonprofits. For more information visit the Classes Page.

Our 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. Our internships develop artistic and administrative skills in the next generation of Richmond artists. For more information visit the Internships Page.

Our Print Spectaculars are designed to shock and amaze. Generally, they involve us printing giant woodcuts with a steamroller, but may also involve live t-shirt printing, roller-skate printing, and soon, a PrintMobile fashioned from an ice cream truck. If you're interested in partnering with us on a community printing event, demonstration, or workshop, contact ashley@printRVA.org
