Layering Color and Light: Woodcut and Monoprint
This rigorous, engaging printmaking workshop focuses on monoprint and woodcut methods with an emphasis on layering color to produce luminous results. We begin with observational studies from the natural world and explore trace, stencil, painterly, and multiple plate monotype methods. Woodcut techniques are then added to layer transparent and opaque color, creating a radiant sense of space. We make both editioned and unique prints, alternating between structure and improvisation. This back-and-forth serves as the format for the course as we combine printing using a woodcut matrix with a variety of monoprint methods.
