Mission

 

IS Projects is a communal printmaking and book arts studio whose mission is to promote innovations and developments to print and book media by providing knowledge, training, and a supportive work space for South Florida's artists. Printmaking comes from a long tradition of collaboration so we strive to bring together like minded artists to create a community in which these artists can flourish. A healthy print community is a sign of a thriving art scene so our role in Fort Lauderdale as the only community print shop is vital. Each time someone walks through the door of IS Projects they learn a little something about the art printmaking and bookbinding. Through events and workshops we hope to cultivate a new love of fine craft in South Florida.
