EDUCATORS & STUDENTS
We especially welcome educators and students to the Los Angeles Printers Fair. Students of typography, graphic design, printmaking, print history, book arts and many other subjects will be richly rewarded by a visit. As our primary mission is education, the Museum and the LA Printers Fair is a great way to get students involved in learning about the ways of printing. You might even consider having your students submit a report and photos about their visit to the Fair. You can also find out about the Museum’s History in Motion trailer and educational programs that can be tailored to specific classes. For 20 years the Museum has specialized in innovative presentations about the history of printing and is experienced working with classes, home-schooling groups and community organizations.
