I love having access to not
only the facilities, the
expertise, but also the
community — people at the
printshop, other artists, renters, class participants,
teachers, workshop people,
etc, etc. All around it’s been
such a positive, energetic,
dynamic, hard-working and
fantastic community to be a
part of (sharing of resources,
information, etc, etc).
