Capital University Students at our Studio

Capital University Printmaking students visited our studio and created solar plates (etching plates) under the instruction of core member, Anne Cushman, the class developed their plates and printed proofs.  A good time was had by all.

"I felt like today was a milestone in quality art making for the Capital University art program. I am very thankful to you and to Anne for making today happen. We at Capital are so fortunate to have you and your talents in our midst."
Jeffrey Shaw, Professor of Art at Capital University

"Our students loved their visit to Phoenix. We had 13 students! They all developed and printed a proof of their plate, they also cleaned up and helped pick up! All in 3 hours!  I couldn't be more proud of my wonderful perfect students! They did a great job on their solar plates!!!"

Mission Statement

Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative is dedicated to promoting the art of printmaking by providing a well-equipped studio, educational opportunities and an environment of mutual support, camaraderie and inspiration for artists and students, and the community.


Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative was formed in 1996, and began renovating a 1904 building into a studio facility that opened its doors in September 1998. From its beginning the studio was equipped with a Takach etching press, a Vandercook relief press and materials to accommodate a variety of printmaking techniques. Later, Phoenix Rising acquired a second etching press and added additional mobile work tables so that more printmakers could work at the same time.

Phoenix Rising had always operated as a nonprofit organization, and in June of 2010 was officially granted 501(c)(3)status. The cooperative moved to its present larger venue in December 2011. The current facility is on the ground floor of a vintage factory with a full wall of north facing windows and is ADA compliant.

Phoenix Rising's artist members offer a variety of workshops and classes that highlight their particular skills and guest artists are invited to give special presentations. The artists of Phoenix Rising provide outreach programs demonstrating and teaching printmaking techniques in a variety of venues - public and private schools, art groups, colleges, artist's residencies, in-service workshops, etc.
