August 22 Figure Session

This one day hands on workshop invites artists to explore observational printmaking by working from a model. Observational monotype provides an opportunity for printmakers to let go of the stringent laws of printmaking and for painters to explore the world of possibilities that printmaking offers. This workshop is welcome to experienced printmakers wanting to work from a model and for beginner printmakers wanting guidence into exploring monotype. Oil and water based printing are welcome.
