Meet Your Guide

Hi, I'm Charles

Too many artists are held back by confusing printmaking processes. Block Paper Print’s online art courses clarify every step so you can focus on being creative and love the experience of making prints. When people have the knowledge and tools to create prints, they can make art that affects real change.
