This intensive workshop provides the context, information, and inspiration to create richly layered monotypes in series using non toxic soy-based Akua Inks. Overprinting, off-set transfers, stamps, stencils, ghost images, and chine collé using a variety of matrices will be explored to achieve “calculated spontaneity”. Emphasis will be made on identifying the synergy between each participant’s own way of making art through demos, one-on-one consultation, critiques, and print viewing to encourage individual directions and the pursuit of projects in depth.
