Why Are We Doing this?
To offer everyone a welcoming space to make art and prints!
Clubhouse Lithography Workshop is moving into a local arts compound. By supporting this campaign, you are making printmaking more accessible in Baltimore City and beyond.
How Kickstarter Works
This project has a funding goal and a deadline. If you like our idea, you can pledge support to make it happen and receive original art mailed to you in return. If the project succeeds in reaching its funding goal, you receive the rewards. If the project falls short, there are no rewards and no one is charged.

What is Clubhouse Lithography Workshop?
Clubhouse provides artists with tools and space to create original prints. We offer fine art limited editions and press rental. In short, at the Clubhouse artists can work 1:1 with a professional printer, take classes, or rent studio time.
When We Reach Our Goal
Your pledge helps us expand capabilities, secure a space and make it safe for visitors. We will retrofit our NuArc Exposure Unit and make photo-lithography available to the public. We will relocate the shop and move our equipment, and it takes a lot to move our stuff! As we reach our goal, we will welcome you to our new location.
When We Open Our Doors to You
Clubhouse is an open access workshop. It means you can rent time to use the printing press, shop space, materials and of course the printer's help. Here is what you can find in the workshop: Charles Brand lithography press, NuArc Metal Halide exposure unit, lithography stones, NuArc light tables, flat file storage and more.
Who We Are
Clubhouse was started by Leyla Rzayeva and Sean Keelan in the basement studio of their Baltimore home.
Leyla Rzayeva is an Azerbaijani and Russian American artist, and a Tamarind Professional Printer.
Sean Keelan was born in Cleveland, Ohio. As a National Trainer at Playworks, Sean helps communities around the nation create opportunities for kids to engage in healthy play.
Most importantly Clubhouse is you - participants that come into the workshop to activate this space.
Hillery Sproatt lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. She has a background in fine art and a deep appreciation for surface design and fine craft. Her dense landscapes littered with people and pattern tell stories of a bigger existence disguised as small.
Sean Keelan is interested in recording things from observation. He is excited about getting people to make things, and that's the whole idea behind making assembly paper pieces and prints.
Leyla Rzayeva is an enthusiast of works on paper and printed material. Her paintings show the simple truth about two dimensional art, that line and shape belong to a flat surface.
