Using a range of new and traditional techniques based in the monotype process, artists in this workshop will develop skills while completing a personal and meaningful new body of work.In this collaborative environment, artists move toward a fluency in translating their individual artistic visions into print.
Participants will develop an image, transfer the image to paper, and print with primary emphasis placed on the development of each participant’s aesthetic concerns. The class will begin with group demos covering basic oil-based monotype techniques then move to more advanced chine-colle and Xerox lithography processes. We will also be working with multiple plates, second pulls (ghosts), stencils wet and dry paper and a variety of mixed approaches. Although this workshops main focus is on monotype, artists are welcome to explore their ongoing print projects in the workshop.
