Venice Exchange Ehibition

The Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia was founded in 1969. This is the major international studio in Venice for practicing and professional artists and designers. The Scuola offers Courses and Workshops in Printmaking, the Artists Book, Calligraphy, and Graphic Design. In 1996 they established an Artists in Residence Program which has been attended by artists from all over the world. They also organize an intense calendar of Exhibitions, presentations and Special Workshops. Through the years, generations of international students and countless University Professors have lived in Venice and studied at the Scuola through semester and intensive programs organized in conjunction with many Affiliated Universities. In their professionally equipped studios, artists and students from all over the world have the opportunity to work side by side with Italian artists and students. This is what makes an experience at Scuola truly unique.
