A bit of a catch-all category, the paper arts spaces include an array of tools and materials. The printmaking space has equipment for both screenprinting and an etching press. The etching press can be used for woodblock, linoleum, monotype, or drypoint. The maximum print size is 16" x 24". Brayers, carving tools, and stylus are available for checkout at the front desk. Free for OSU students, we also have an extensive array of cardmaking tools and materials available for use while in the Craft Center. There are drawing boards and both tabletop easels and standing easels available for check out. We have paintbrushes, containers for water, and a space for you to work.
The following kits are available for checkout by student members: drawing, watercolor painting, acrylic painting, and zine-making.
