Print Day in May was established in 2007 by Robynn Smith of Monterey Peninsula College in California. Since then, the celebration has been recognized worldwide on the first Saturday of May and is approaching its 16th year. It is a day when art lovers around the globe teach and create various print forms, then share their masterpieces via social media.

The event will be free and open to the public, with the choice of going home with an original print.
