The Day has Come!!!!!

It’s Print Day in May! Beth and Robynn are heading down to Monterey to print with 15 others at Monterey Peninsula College. You’ll hear from us throughout the day.
Print On!!!!!!

Here at MPC, there are printmakers working in most techniques: artists are creating and printing solar plates, monotypes, linocuts, gum arabic transfer, pronto plates and dry-point. So far no one has dipped into the etching tank but alas, the day is young!

A quick note: Comments are moderated, so they will not appear instantly on the blog. However we will be checking for them throughout the day. Also if you have photos, we can make a page for you under the Participating Artists Heading. Please email photos and descriptions to

Print Day in May Is Almost Here!

Please let us know where you will be printing on May 4, 2013. You can post to this blog with comments and photos. We would love to add you to our rooster of participating artists. Here in the Monterey Bay area Robynn and Beth will be printing at Monterey Peninsula College the birthplace of Print Day in May.

Print Day in May is a great opportunity to invite fellow artists or curious bystanders into your studio and share with them the joys of printmaking.

Make a mark on Saturday, print and repeat!


A Note from Wied and Hendrick in Eindoven, Belgium

A note from Wied and Hendrick in Eindoven, Belgium,

As you could imagine I print almost every day, so also on the 4th of May! So of course I’ll join you.

I have place for 4 printers: one lithography press, one woodprint press, one screenprint press and two etching presses.


So four printers are welcome!

Join Us for Print Day in May-2013

This year the event is Saturday May 4th.  It’s so easy and fun to participate. Just print somewhere, sometime during the day, and let us know you’re doing it. Your post will go up on our blog and you’ll be connected to printmakers all around the globe, all doing what they love to do,  all at the same time.


Print Day in May began in 2007 at Monterey Peninsula College (MPC), Monterey, CA. The MPC Fine Art Print Club (now the MPC Printmakers) created it to encourage printmakers everywhere to create prints on the same day . . . an all-inclusive printmaking effort! Join the MPC Printmakers, and make some prints during International Print Day in May!

If you are in the Monterey Bay Area, you can sign up for ART 38F Special Printmaking Techniques: Individualized Projects at Monterey Peninsula College.  This is Print Day in May home base, and we must fill this workshop to ensure a successful event, so please visit the website and sign up for this great class!













Yay! Print Day in May! My dog is dancing!

Dogs and people all love Print Day in May. Paw prints, etchings, monotypes, footprints, collographs, relief prints, even lipstick prints on the bathroom mirror. Print something and let us know about it!

You are part of the worldwide community of printmakers, all doing what they love to do, all on the same day.

Welcome, and let us know who you are.

Happy printing,

Robynn and Beth
