Using basic monotype techniques as a springboard, this workshop will explore the world of visual possibilities available to artists using both wet and dry media to create rich, highly developed works of art.
Kate McGloughlin will ask one thing of you: “Consider the possibilities”. Starting with a large or small format plexiglass plate, make a sweeping gesture with a roller or brush loaded with a bold color of ink. Pass that plate through a printing press with a gorgeous piece of paper on top of it. Behold your monotype and let it tell you what subsequent marks it needs to bring it to fruition. Use the collegial atmosphere of a group setting to help you edit and consider your next move. Look through your art making kit and use the tool that will make this work truly your own; soft pastels, Prismacolor pencils, oil pastels, oil sticks, book binder’s awl and a long golden thread, stencils and stamps, glue stick and parts of old prints and other beautiful things you’ve collected over the years in your art file for someday. This is someday.
