Frogman's Summer Printmaking workshops

Frogman's 2016 Summer Print Workshops - Registration is Open!

Registration for Frogman's 2015 Summer Workshops is now open!
The Frogman's Printmaking Workshops are a great opportunity to expand your knowledge of printmaking and network with printmakers from across the country. The workshops are held the first two weeks of July every summer. Artists, art students, and and art educators come together from all over the country to learn from the best of the best. The University of South Dakota hosts the workshops in Vermillion, SD. The workshops include demonstrations, visiting artist's lectures, exhibitions, an open portfolio session, and many other invigorating activities!  For more information talk to one of our many students and alumni who have participated in recent years.

UNT Prinmaking majors can earn 3-hours academic credit through a "special problems" course in the Fall Semester formalizing the experience with a series of demonstrations and presentations. If you are interested in this, please contact professor Andrew DeCaen before going to the workshops.

Starting this summer, Frogman?s Print Workshops will be held in Omaha, Nebraska at the University of Nebraska Omaha!
