DATES: June 15 – 19, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: Open to all
CONCEPT: Monotypes are often described as “painterly prints,” but using mylar to make hand-cut stencils can yield a more graphic, clean-edged effect. This workshop is open to painters and printmakers alike who are intrigued by the process of creating one-of-a-kind prints. Stencil methods are introduced as well as mark-making processes, background blends, gum Arabic transfers and other fascinating monotype techniques. Students have the opportunity to translate drawings, paintings and photographs into the print form using Plexiglas plates as a printing surface.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Students participate in the inking of plates, printing, press use, paper handling and monotype processes including stencils, blends and image layering.
ACTIVITIES: We engage in demonstrations, participate in individual and group feedback, have group discussion and ample studio time.
