Ron Pokrasso’s approach to monotype will open your eyes and your artistic process to a whole new range of possibilities. Using Akua non-toxic products, participants will utilize an array of techniques for monotype printmaking, in combination with chine colle/collage and drawing. Participants will learn how to think in layers to print on dry paper with several plates and surfaces, putting emphasis on perfecting multiple plate registration and long term planning of prints. Pokrasso’s unique approach interspersed with art-making philosophies makes this an intensive, enriching, eco-friendly, week-long art immersion. As a primer for MONOTHON 2023, this workshop is great for beginners as well as a perfect tune-up for experienced monotype artists.
