Start a new project or finish something you have started. Don’t let your lack of studio equipment be an obstacle! Waterfall Arts has well-furnished and staffed facilities for artists of all skill levels to drop in and work independently on their own projects. In addition to providing a workspace and tools, the studios at Waterfall Arts provide a forum for sharing ideas, developing techniques, and experimentation, as well as an opportunity for building community. Artists working in all disciplines are welcome and encouraged to get involved.
The Kennedy Press is equipped with three etching presses (60″ x 38″ Conrad, 22″x50″ Dickerson Combo, 24″ x 45″ Brand), ferric etch bath, brayers, hot plate, and large drying rack. The studio is notably a “green” studio. We aim to use the safest current practices with as little toxins as possible (such as using chemicals that are solvent-free). Our studio monitors are happy to provide training on how to incorporate these methods into your working style.
Drop-in rates are $20 for a 3-hour session. Maximum 5 artists during Open Studios.
