CCGA Print Studio

COVID-19 Preventative Measures

Located in Sukagawa City, Fukushima Prefecture, at the foot of the verdant Mt. Uzumine, CCGA, which has specialized in printmaking and graphic design, opened its print studio for the general public in 2012.
Sukagawa is the birthplace of Aoudou Denzen, an Edo-era painter who was one of the earliest to make Western-style copperplate prints in Japan, and whose works were designated as a National Important Cultural Property in 2012.
We established a print studio where the public can experience printmaking and open the studio to the public for those with experience.
