Workshop #1: Monoprints from Old Drawings

Work with old drawings or images to create new exciting monoprints, or create the imagery as you go along!
You will provide the imagination, the visual material or reference: old drawings, paintings or photo references that can be placed under the plate and painted from. This is a great way to use newsprint sketches, figure gestures etc. to inspire a new work of art. You can also bring a still life to paint from, or from whatever you see in the studio!

You will have several plates for use during the day, with enough paper for 4-8 small to medium prints (quarter to half size sheets). Additional printmaking paper available at cost.

Workshop #2: Monoprints from the Still Life

We will be painting directly from the still life onto printmaking plates, and watercolor, oil and pastels will be available to further work into imagery if desired.You will have several plates for use, with enough paper for 4-8 small to medium prints (quarter to half size sheets). Additional printmaking paper available at cost.

Note: Solvents may be used in these workshops.
