Roving Press Art Classes for Children

A commitment to enhance the arts education of children has been central to the mission of the Printmaking Center of NJ for the past 40 years. That mission has been upheld through The Roving Press, an outreach program staffed by professional artists that brings art instruction to schools and Community Organizations.

We believe that every child has amazing artistic potential. Our artist-centered programs create infectious excitement through artist residencies, in-school exhibitions, and professional development training for art teachers and classroom teachers alike. Students learn about contemporary art practice from professional artists using high-quality materials. Each program strives to empower visual literacy to nurture the next generation of artists and arts audiences.

Roving Press programs are offered in the following:

  • Monotype
  • Collagraph
  • Drypoint
  • Relief
  • Lithography
  • Papermaking
  • Book Arts
  • Silkscreen
  • Photography
  • Alternative Methods

All instructors at The Printmaking Center have been registered and fingerprinted with the NJ Department of Education.

For information on how to bring these exciting programs to your community please contact Director Sandra C. Fernandez at or call 908.725.2110.
