The Brodsky Center is part of the school at PAFA and provides internship and professional opportunities for students to learn about the process of editioning, marketing, and selling artists' prints. Students will learn from artists-in-residence, who will make prints alongside them in the print shop. A new papermaking facility at PAFA provides papermaking opportunities for both Brodsky Center editions and PAFA students.
