Workshop Description 

This workshop is part of our Master Printer Series.

 

The directness and immediacy of monotype printing is an excellent vehicle for artists desiring to expand the possibilities of image making.  Participants will be introduced to a variety of monotype printing techniques, such as watercolor, trace monotypes, stencils and ghost printing.  Emphasis will be placed on experimenting with these techniques and others, while applying traditional drawing, painting and collage processes to the prints. The main objective will be the investigation of process, change and the development of each person’s unique visual language. This workshop is open to all levels of experience.

 

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