This two-day workshop will explore the layering effects of monotype using the perfect registration of the Vandercook Proofing Press to produce unique impressions with luminous color relationships. Monotypes will be developed by over-printing numerous translucent color inks, and by printing dry media such as pencil, charcoal or pastel. Demonstrations will lead the participant from their preliminary sketches to working in both reductive and additive printing approaches. Many examples will be shown along with demonstrations of stenciling and other techniques.

JIM LEE received a M.F.A. in printmaking from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1980. He has taught printmaking, drawing and book arts at the Hartford Art School of the University of Hartford, West Hartford, CT since 1982. Landscape is at the core of his work. He often begins a series with on-site drawings, and from these develops his multi-layered, color reduction woodcut prints. Recent work has been based on the west coast of Ireland, Maine and Maritime Canada. He is also very interested in the people who inhabit these locations, weaving references to their history, culture and legend into his work.
