LIFE AT THE SCUOLA
Studio Resident artists have open access to the Scuola’s studio facilities. They are given keys 
to the Scuola and are welcome to use the facilites 7 days a week, from 9am to 8:30pm, including bank holidays. Both artists and students enjoy 
participating in life at the Scuola through presentations and critiques. When in calendar, resident artists have the opportunity to attend our classes and workshops at no additional cost.

SUPPORTED TECHNIQUES
At the Scuola, artists can work on 8 etching presses, a vertical press for woodcut, a typographic press for letterpress.

  • We do not support Litography, Serigraphy, Photoetching as there is no exposure unit.
  • Alternative methods are available for creating Aquatints using substitutes for the traditional Aquatint box and rosin.
  • Oil and Encausting painting are not allowed in our studio.

One of the distinguishing features of our studio is its commitment to providing a less toxic environment for artists. For those who may not be familiar with sustainable printmaking methods, we extend an invitation to attend our introduction courses. These courses are designed to familiarize artists with the techniques and practices necessary to work in our facilities while minimizing environmental impact.

ART SUPPLIES & MATERIALS
These materials are available to everyone: etching grounds, soft ground, abrasive powders, detergents, bites (ferric chloride, copper sulphate),  black ink for etching and typography, proof paper and vellum paper. Other equipment is available only on a limited basis (glue, acrylics, permanent markers, masking tape, cutters, carborundum, tarlatan).
You are required to provide your own materials, including brushes and pencils. Gloves, tarlatan, coloured inks, etching paper, copper, aluminium, wood and zinc can be purchased from the Studio or in local stores. Special care must be taken with use of Scuola equipment and in particular to return all such equipment back to where it belongs after use. Equipment is never to be removed from the Scuola. Each morning a staff member checks all equipment, printing characters, inks, rollers, brushes etc: Books in the studio & library are to be returned to their place after consultation and are never to be taken out of the Scuola.

SHIPPING GOODS TO ITALY
Shipping goods to Italy is a perilous business as customs may block them and request complicated paperwork. We strongly discourage studio resident artists from shipping to Venice items such as shampoo, medicines, vitamins, health supplements, as they will all (almost certainly) be checked. Regretfully, the Scuola is unable to provide assistance in dealing with customs in this regards.

NON DISCRIMINATION POLICIES
The Scuola welcomes in its studios artists of all genders, ethnic groups, political and sexual orientations, physical abilities.

YOUR ART-WORK
All our studio resident artists are requested to donate a minimum of one art-work produced during their residency to the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica print collection.
