Fellow Printmakers, I wanted to pass on this residency opportunity I will be taking part in. Spread the word to your friends and students. Alice O'Neill



By carving or etching a design onto almost any surface, you can print multiples onto another surface, varying each reproduction as you like.

With its own building full of specialized presses, Printmaking invites you to explore both traditional and experimental techniques for reproducing your own images using inks and paper. You’ll learn to master the nuances of working in intaglio, lithography, screenprint, relief, digital and alternative print methods – all of which are available as a means of finding your own voice and fueling your a

It’s all in the details as our experiments pick-up momentum in “The Sculptural Print”… Repurposed-proofs of woodcuts are becoming full on installation-like environments, Polymer plate intaglio prints are coating armor-like shields, Newsprint is being pushed to new significance as a weaving material that actually holds-weight, Plexi and wood are fusing to create strange mechanical devices that are at once ancient and futuristic, Paper is becoming wearable and performative, Laser cut wood is meshing with digitally printed vinyl to create large-scale free-standing sculptures, Screenprinting is being reworked in W***y Wonka’s Chocolate Factory to create giant versions of sweets that at second glance aren’t so sweet after all, and we’re mining the depths of fantastical seas to discover what seems to be artifactual remains of a fantastical aquatic beast…! (Not yet posted: A linocut is being transformed into an ornate paper lantern, and Hand-printed foamcore is being built into scale architectural models!) …Printed matter and all things related to the matrix are being pushed and re-envisioned daily! And, AMAZINGLY, we’re only 3-weeks in…! Many more updates to come!


Full house! ✌🏼😷 Introduction to Intaglio

Lesley Dill Studio is now open to applications for Winter/Spring/Summer internships.

We are currently working towards a large installation. We are looking for upbeat, calm and quiet interns skilled in working with their hands. The current project requires acrylic painting skill with crisp edges and exact linework, especially with stenciled text; Exact-o blade cutting.

This is a team building collaborative studio where we make decisions and develop techniques together. The ideal candidate has a strong interest in collaboration, works well with their hands and is prepared to work independently on complex studio projects.

This is a teaching studio. We offer lunchtime daily talks or films, invited guests give talks, and we offer you an opportunity to give a presentation on your work as well. Lesley and Sarah will talk to you about archiving, model making, care of materials, studio organization, and the process of preparation for a multi-level project. We will talk about the early American visionaries featured in this exhibition.

The home-based studio working days are Wednesdays-Fridays, 9:45-5:00, and the studio is located in Brooklyn Heights.
We ask for a commitment of one to three days a week for 2-3 months.
Academic credit can be arranged for students. This is an unpaid internship.

Please email Lesley at [email protected] with a resume, cover letter and images of your work, if you are interested in interviewing for this position.
