Photography Labs and Print Media Facilities

AAP supports all aspects of photographic image-making. This includes providing darkrooms for both black and white and alternative processes, digital printing and scanning, equipment loans, and a professional lighting studio.

The print media facilities include dedicated studios for intaglio, lithography, and screen printing; a darkroom for hybrid processes; as well as the full range of services offered in the digital fabrication lab. An additional studio designated for graduate student and faculty use provides a professional space for fully resolved projects and serves as a pedagogical model studio where collaborations take place between artists. The print studios incorporate other material processes beyond their designed uses, including papermaking and casting, bookmaking, woodcut, and monotype.
