Studio Arts Boulder is a non-profit art education organization that provides high-quality ceramics programs at the Boulder Pottery Lab and partners with other studio arts organizations for programs in other mediums. The “studio arts” are those art forms which require a substantial investment in equipment and facilities that is beyond the means of most individuals, such as ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, metal, glass, and fiber.

Monoprinting (with Gelli Plates)


Are you interested in printmaking? Want to learn how to print without a press? Delve into the art of non-toxic printmaking through monoprinting with Gelli™ Plates. Gelli™ Plates look and feel like gelatin, but they are reusable, and easy to clean/store. This workshop examines the one-of-a-kind printmaking process with the use of color and texture. We will make impressions of a variety of objects and explore composition development with the use of stencils and layering techniques.

Did you know...?
We are merging our social media accounts! The Pottery Lab, founded in 1954, is the heart of Studio Arts Boulder. We plan to offer amazing pottery programs at the Lab forever. But, we're also growing - adding new art forms like printmaking, metal, and more. So, to share all of the awesomeness in one place, we're merging our social media accounts under one name - STUDIO ARTS BOULDER. You'll still see all the fun from the Pottery Lab. Plus more! Watch for the name change in April!
