In the beginner-friendly Quick and Dirty class (not to be confused with the Down and Dirty class), Second State Press co-founder Jennifer McTague pulls back the chicly inked veil on the art of screen printing. All materials are included, and students need bring only an idea of their design and some clothes they don't mind getting dirty, such as an old T-shirt or a friend's tuxedo. They then learn to draw a film positive, expose a shot screen, and print their design on paper. At the end of the class, everyone takes home an edition of prints.

Second State Press

Its expansive facilities stuffed to the gills with Charles Brand and Vandercook printing machines, Second State Press grants the community access to self-stamped art. Members gain access to studio time for rent by the hour, month, or year, as well as invitations to special events, talks, and demos. Additionally, anyone can sign up for one of Second State Press's many beginner-friendly classes. Those especially committed to the craft might be honored with Fob Holder status, which awards 24-hour access in exchange for a few responsibilities around the studio, such as cleaning or finally shredding the newspaper monster lurking in the basement.
