Using watercolor paints and water-soluble crayons, participants will create drawings and paintings with a freeness and spontaneity not present in other monotype techniques. Through the course of the workshop, Chris will teach basic screenprinting techniques such as registration, and color blending. The materials and process are essentially non-toxic and accessible to novices and advanced printmakers.printmakers.
