The Print Studio: Our large, luminous, printshop is equipped with presses for most printmaking media and is available to all Studio Resident artists.
The Pavilion Studio:  Light bright studio with individual work spaces accomodates up to six artists at a time. Painters are encouraged to apply with projects in mind that are based on painting techniques that are compatible with a shared space as the Pavilion Studio is not suitable for oil paint, nor for painting methods which may provoke strong smells or use of toxic materials.

Screenprint Studio: artists also have access to a serigraphy studio equipped with frames, squeegees and an exposure unit. Artists must supply all materials, inks etc that they will require to print.
Computer Room: The computer room is equipped with iMacs. From June to September the computer room is free all day and from October to May available daily from 16:45 onwards. Note that printers and scanners are not available so you will be directed to a local shop for good quality printouts.

to the Scuola and are welcome to use the facilites 7 days a week, from 9am to 10:30pm. Both artists and students enjoy

You are required to provide your own materials, including glue, acrylics, permanent markers, carborundum, tarlatan and brushes. Coloured inks, etching paper, copper, zinc and wood can be purchased from the Studio or in local stores. There are some materials in the print studio available to everyone in limited quantities: Etching grounds, soft ground, alcohol, petroleum, detergents, gloves, bites (ferric chloride, copper solphate), lithography stones, black oil base ink for etching, lithography and typography black ink, proof paper and vellum paper. Special care must be taken with use of Scuola equipment and in particular to return all such equipment back to where it belongs after use. Equipment is never to be removed from the Scuola. Each morning a staff member checks all equipment, printing characters, inks, rollers, brushes etc: Books in the studio & library are to be returned to their place after consultation and are never to be taken out of the Scuola.

SHIPPING GOODS TO ITALY
Shipping goods to Italy is a perilous business as customs may block them and request complicated paperwork. We strongly discourage studio resident artists from shipping to Venice items such as shampoo, medicines, vitamins, health supplements, as they will all (almost certainly) be checked. Regretfully, the Scuola is unable to provide assistance in dealing with customs in this regards
NON DISCRIMINATION POLICIES
he Scuola welcomes in its studios artists of all genders, ethnic groups, political and sexual orientations.
YOUR ART-WORK
All our studio resident artists are requested to donate a minimum of one art-work produced during their residency to the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica print collection.
