Participants in this unique workshop will be introduced to the versatile world of monotypes utilizing a screenprint mesh as the surface to work on. Using watercolor paints and water-soluble crayons, you can create draw­ings and paintings with a freeness and spontaneity unlike other monotype techniques. Through the workshop participants will learn basic screenprinting techniques such as registration, color blending and how to print on a variety of surfaces. The materials and process are essentially non-toxic and accessible to novices and advanced printmakers.

Christopher Shore received his MFA in printmaking from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. He has studied printmaking in Venice and Florence. His work explores many traditional and non-traditional printmaking techniques and has been exhibited internationally. Chris is the Staff Master Printer at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking.
