Group Visits

Edinburgh Printmakers is a lively and thriving visual arts organization based in the City Centre housing a gallery and artists printmaking studio. We specialize in printmaking and are proud to be amongst the best in the world for publishing contemporary fine art prints.

We want to share our passion for visual art in the medium of printmaking with our community and we do this by providing educational experiences that can be gallery or studio based, or both! Engagement with art enriches our experience of life in many ways. By developing children’s art experience directly in discovery; looking and seeing, listening and discussing, experimenting with processes and the use of different materials, we extend their creative confidence, their visual vocabulary and offer substantial opportunities for cross curricular learning.
