Mission: The ZACC print staff and interns are dedicated to promoting awareness and appreciation of the art of making original prints. The ZACC serves as a valuable resource to the prints art community by offering scholarships and low cost classes. We also strive to advance the professional standing of persons engaged in making original prints and to stimulate public appreciation and interest in the arts of printmaking.
The ZACC Community Print Shop is one of only two public print shops located in Montana! The ZACC Print Shop offers the space and supplies to accomplish numerous print-making techniques including; silk-screening, relief printing, and intaglio printing.
The ZACC envisions a community of connection – where the people of Missoula are connected to this place and to one another. We envision a community that knows what it takes to make those connections real and meaningful. We must be a community that understands that our diversity is among our great strengths. We must challenge ourselves to be welcoming and inclusive.

SEW PRINTY SEWING LAB
We're excited to announce that thanks to the hard work of long-time volunteer Loretta Vizzutti, we now have a Sew Printy Sewing Lab! In collaboration with our Print Shop, we'll be working to offer classes that encourage folks to use printmaking techniques to make customized fabric, then teach you how to sew specific items using the material made in class.
We also want to give a very special thanks to those who have donated machines to our Sew Printy Sewing Lab:
