Yes, the Media type (kind of paper) can be adjusted.

 

Unfortunately, the available data makes it a bit difficult to tell (from the outside) precisely what paper weights your printer can handle in each Media type.

DatasheetHP ENVY Photo 7855 All-in-OnePrinter

 

Media Types Supported

Plain Paper; HP Photo Papers; HP Matte Brochure or Professional Paper; HP Matte Presentation Paper; HP Glossy Brochure or Professional Paper; Other Photo Inkjet Papers; Other Matte Inkjet Papers; Other Glossy Inkjet Papers, Plain Paper,Light/Recycled

 

Media Weight Supported 

16 to 80 lb

 

===========================================================

 

The printer might support photo paper at 300 gsm (a bit less than that is standard for "non" photo model printers).

 

The problem, if there is one, is that your Art Paper is not likely photo paper.

 

Your Media choices for Not-photo paper then, are restricted to the weights within each class of supported paper.

 

For example,

HP Brochure Matte paper is generally 180 gsm.

Presentation Paper is a bit lighter at 120 gsm.

Professional Paper is likely closer to Brochure paper than it is to Presentation Paper.
