This 4-day workshop will focus on the Solarplate printmaking process. Each participant will have the opportunity to draw, paint, collage, or work with photographic images directly onto a light-sensitized photopolymer plate. The excitement of “hybridized’ works on paper yields many interpretations from a single Solarplate and can be integrated into the monotype process (up to 16 X 20 inches). Participants may try their hand at reworking the image with materials such as gesso, Caran d’Ache crayons, matte medium, and other materials. Although the process may be new, self-directed artists interested in developing a series of one of a kind works will find a strong affinity to this approach. Artists may also feel free to bring their ‘rejects’ or incomplete works to experiment with.
*Solarplates are included*
