Since 2008 the thinking person's favorite online resource for interesting printmaking miscellany...A great blog with all sorts of print related articles that expand the boundaries of printmaking as both a practical and conceptual practice. Printeresting posts regularly and one look in the archives and you realize they are really creating a dialogue that is stimulating and....interesting!
There are many interesting instructional videos about printmaking on You Tube. Some are from artists, schools and museums. These are great to share with your students or when you need a refresher course once in awhile.

Most of the leading California artists of the second half of the twentieth century, from Wayne Thiebaud to David Hockney and Ed Ruscha, were both painters and printmakers. Printmaking flourished thanks to the establishment of print workshops where artists could benefit from the technical know-how and inventiveness of expert printers.The most notable were Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, founded in 1960; Crown Point Press in San Francisco, founded in 1962; Gemini G. E. L. in Los Angeles, founded in 1966; and Cirrus Editions, also in Los Angeles, founded in 1970. Drawn from the museum’s own print holdings and some local private collections, this exhibition is an anthology of outstanding works by California printmakers of the period.For those unfamiliar with printmaking processes, it also serves as an introduction to the various techniques involved—lithography, screenprinting, etching, and so on. The main printmaking terms are briefly explained in a glossary available in the galleries.February 22 – May 31, 2015
