Workshop Description 

This workshop will focus on developing new ways of creating prints through a combination of multiple techniques and the exploration of different approaches to personal visual language making.  The main objective is investigation of process, change and image development.  Participants will explore drypoint, monotype, chine colle and collage.  In addition, we will explore a variety of approaches to constructing work, through repetitive layering, manipulating ghost images and the use of transparent color.


Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22 x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
