AIR = Artist Image Resource – a super awesome resource for anyone interested in printmaking. I taught myself to screenprint in a dark Pittsburgh basement because no one had told me about AIR. This place is a great place to learn about printmaking and screenprinting.
AIR is an artist-run organization that integrates the production of fine art printwork with innovative educational programs that explore the creative process. AIR provides print and imaging services to professional artists and educators. Our goal is to maintain an active and vital imaging laboratory that supports artists and facilitates creative activity.

I have been wondering about something like this in Pittsburgh. Ive heard of other bigger cities having stuff like this. I love my city.
@Sam – thanks for reading. AIR is pretty great. I know they used to have open studio hours on Tuesday evenings – that was a few years ago. Have you been to other print studios? I would be interested to see what other cities have too.
