Embrace Paper In a Digital World

Print media and Paper Arts are some of the oldest crafts forms, rich with history. Printmaking is the art of making multiples and bringing art to the masses—or your friends! Prints are for telling stories, capturing moments, and can be wearable, highly rendered, or abstract. Black and white, colorful, complex, simple, flat, dimensional—the possibilities are endless!

The Lawrence Art Center believes everyone is an artist–all you need to unleash it is a little guidance!

With financial aid available, adult painting classes and drawing classes in Lawrence are open to everyone who wants to learn about the visual arts.
