Schedule Your Studio Time
Studio time needs to be scheduled in advance, during office hours, on a first come, first serve basis. The Center is open Monday – Saturday, 9am – 5pm and Sunday 12 – 5pm. Extended hours with a monitor are often available on Wednesdays from 5 – 9pm. There is also an etching monitor available on most Thursdays, from 12 to 5 pm. These hours are subject to change. Studio rental is not available when a workshop is in session, during holidays when the Center is closed, and during MONOTHON printing week.

CCP offers 24-hour key access to the studios when workshops are not in session to members who have been approved for this special program.
To apply for membership in the Key Holder Program, an applicant must have working knowledge of the printmaking techniques they wish to explore, and must be approved to work independently at CCP.
CCP has copper/zinc plates and a variety of inks and paper as well as other items available for sale. Most studio consumables are provided as part of the studio fee or the material fee for a workshop, but any specialty items are the artist's responsibility. Prices are competitive with national retailers.
