Artist Proof Studio

Artist Proof Studio (APS) has evolved into an energetic, creative and innovative community printmaking studio that provides educational and professional development opportunities for young emerging artists. It also provides collaborative printmaking facilities for established artists and a gallery to showcase the work produced by students and established artists. Through its diverse activities, APS facilitates the transformation of passion into possibility.


Founded on a sense of shared humanity, APS’s mission is to provide an environment to develop citizens with a common set of values, expressed in the idea of Ubuntu. APS focuses on printmaking and its allied outreach programmes to build capacity of people to reach self-actualisation and make a difference in society. There are four aspects of the studio that work in together to develop the careers of emerging artists and actively promote and support artistic excellence primarily through printmaking. These include: Professional Print Shop, the Gallery, Special Projects and Education.
