History

Since 2004, The Washington Print Club has joined with the Washington Printmakers Gallery and its nonprofit arm, the Washington Print Foundation, to award an annual Excellence in Printmaking student prize. The aim of this award is to encourage printmaking and the use of traditional, non-digital techniques.
