The Nature Printing Society

An excellent resource for the gyotaku artist is the Nature Printing Society (natureprintingsociety.org).  Founded in 1976, the Nature Printing Society is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to the education, the history and practice of the art of nature printing, and to those who support the philosophy of respect for nature through the art of the print.

The NPS publishes a quarterly newsletter that contains information on techniques used in printing, schedules of classes and workshops held by and for members, dates of shows exhibiting prints by members, and bibliographies of interest to nature printers. NPS also sponsors an annual weeklong workshop for its members in different aspects of nature printing.
