Printmaking Barcelona Open Call for Summer & Autumn

Associated Residency Program

Located in the heart of Barcelona, ​​Printmaking Barcelona has been, since 1986, an artistic studio for artists to develop their works in the field of chalcographic engraving. Using essential techniques such as monotypes, etching, aquatint, mezzotint, carbourundum among others. In recent years, we have introduced other printing or developing techniques such as screen printing, cyanotype, photoetching, linocut...

We offer the artist the possibility of working in a space dedicated to printmaking and arts in general, ​​surrounded by emblematic places of the city.

The main objective of the Printmaking Barcelona Resident Program is for artists (whether new or experts) to feel in a place that inspires them to carry out their work. Surrounded by a unique environment and with professionals with extensive experience who will guide them to achieve the best possible results in their works of art.

In addition to a space equipped with everything you need, we also offer training in the different techniques that we carry out when we opened the studio. It doesn't matter that you don't have experience, the important thing is that you want to learn.
At the end of the residency, we offer the possibility of selling the works through our virtual gallery, as well as publishing the work on our social networks.

The studio has all the necessary machinery and tools to work on engraving and printing techniques.
