CPC policy in regards to Covid-19 pandemic

To our local and global CPC community:
We are so excited to see our socially distanced, masked, resident and member artists back in the shop working the presses and giving the space a much-missed jolt of creative energy! For everyone’s safety, studio time must be scheduled via the shared CPC Google calendar and only 2 artists may work in the main, front area of the shop at the same time, with an additional artist in the middle studio. The CPC is fully stocked with hand sanitizer, wipes, and disinfectant sprays for all work areas.
We continue to monitor Covid numbers in the city and believe we still have to make sacrifices in order to keep our community safe and healthy. With that in mind, we have made the decision to resume in-studio group classes in October. Online classes will be rolled out throughout the rest of summer and fall. BOOKBINDING BASICS and the ONLINE RELIEF CLASS were so popular that we’ve added more sessions beginning in September.
CPC will offer in-person PRIVATE and SEMI PRIVATE CLASSES beginning in September in all media! Call (773-293-2070) or email the studio for more information.
Gallery visits may now be made by appointment only, and all visitors are required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose. Those interested in purchasing work in the gallery online may still do so via Paypal or credit card by phone. Please email  info@chicagoprintmakers.com to make arrangements. We offer either private, sanitary curbside pickup (free) or secure shipping ($25-$45 for domestic packages).
We invite you all to participate in some of CPC’s fun and creative online activities:
* CPC Remote Printshop Facebook Group – search for it and ask to join in!
* FLATFILE FRIDAY – check out our past artist features!
30 ARTISTS/ 30 YEARS exhibit is viewable online!
* Member Spotlights – meet our very talented CPC artists.

We’d love to hear from you, and hope you are well and busy with things (and people) you love. Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or thoughts. I will do my very best to communicate with you during these most unprecedented times.

Be well, in health and ink,

Deborah Maris Lader, Director
