Any artist who has experience as a printmaker has the opportunity to rent time in our studio to create prints.  Studio Renters work independently to produce their own prints. Studio rental is designed specifically for individuals who have demonstrated an appropriate level of experience in printmaking and are granted access to work in one or more printmaking techniques, including relief, letterpress, intaglio, monotype and screen printing. While Studio Renters are not required to have extensive experience in their chosen medium, we do require that they can use the facilities correctly, independently, safely, and with consideration for other studio artists and staff.

Becoming a Studio Renter:

To become a Studio Renter, all potential artists must attend orientation. As there are potential hazards in using the equipment and related materials, Xico assesses the technical abilities of potential renters during orientation.

Please allow sufficient time for this process before you plan to start renting.

Renters must provide their own inks, plates, and cleaning up supplies. However for an extra fee, artists may use the supplies in the studio.

Renters work independently during open studio hours when a studio monitor is present and pay a $50 refundable security deposit.

Orientations will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:30am-10am, and the third Monday of every month at 9:30am-11am. Please email to sign up.
