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 not present in 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.
