The hourly rate covers the instruction, facility use, and administration costs only; supply and materials fees will be an additional cost and will be dependent upon your program and specific printmaking process.

A material and supply list will be sent during the planning process so participants can decide if they wish to supply their own items or pay a fee to use SNAP’s.
