Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Print/Out, Print Studio is an interactive space that explores the evolution of artistic practices relating to the medium of print.

For the past three years, artist Jorge Colombo has been making digital compositions of New York landscapes finger painted from life, on location, on his iPhone. Innovative technological tools have made it possible for creative experimentation using easily accessible digital mediums. Drawing from his own experience of making “pocket art,” Colombo leads a workshop in digital finger drawing and invites participants to explore the inventive possibilities such technologies bring to the print medium.

For these workshops, participants are encouraged to bring in their own iPad or iPhone. A limited number of iPads will be available. The Brushes painting application will be used during the workshop.
