Parsons Print Shop Holiday Sale!

For every art student by the end of the semester all you have is a ton of left over art- art prints, t-shirts, sketchbooks, sculptures and paintings. The Parsons Printshop understands this case of multiples and has an annual Holiday Print Sale. Every student who is in a printmaking class during that semester has the ability to purge some delightful art prints while indulging in Hot Chocolate ( It’s of course BYOM, bring your own mug).

How cute! Never forget to Bring Your Own Mug!

Anyone can take a printmaking course because printmaking is elective based and is not a major here at Parsons. But it is one of our most popular electives offered on campus, every semester there’s a great race for printmaking just because it applies to all majors. The Printmaking Shop offers courses in Lithography, Wood Cut, Type printing, Etching, Photo Etching, Silk Screen, Fashion Textiles and a course that covers all types of printmaking in one semester. Classes are always filled with students from Communication Design, Illustration, Fine Art and Photography but that doesn’t mean our Fashion students don’t join the fun as well!

As soon as I saw the poster hanging in the hallowed halls of Parsons this past friday, I called the admissions team for both Eugene Lang and Parsons to action! We scurried across to 2 West 13th leaving our piles of admissions reviews behind to go enjoy some fantastic prints. We bought silkscreens, lithographs, patches and woodcuts!

Morgan and Hillary being adorable holding up their buys! Look at that awesome Silkscreen!

All of them now fill our tiny offices and offer inspiration to the visiting prospective students who swing by. I personally bought a beautiful tiny etching and a multi-layered silkscreen of a barn while Morgan invested in an etching of a very tall mysterious tenement building.Not bad for 13 dollars and some hot chocolate!
