Our acclaimed printmaking program offers artists the opportunity to create fine art limited print editions & monoprints through a peer-led approach, providing a nurturing environment that supports artists’ creativity & careers.


For 43 years Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) has organized one of the most popular Día de los Muertos events in Los Angeles and perhaps the oldest Day of the Dead commemoration in the country.


SHG is one of few places in LA that offers artists a space where they can develop artistically in a peer to peer setting. Art Workshops attract all levels of artists to work in a variety of art mediums such as intaglio printmaking, DIY silkscreening, and many other forms.
