In this workshop, we will embrace free play and improvisation to create multi-layer experimental prints using monotype and papercutting techniques. In the print studio, we will explore all aspects of creating multi-layer monotypes on plexiglass plates. Experimenting with simple shape stencils, texture techniques, blend rolls, we will dive into rich color using transparency and opacity to full effect. Using oil-based inks we will create small works on both Western and Eastern papers. Additionally, we will explore paper cutting and paper joining techniques to experiment with both physical and printed layers while exploring the importance of play in our own studio practice.
Level: All levels welcome, though experience with monotype printmaking is helpful (but it’s not required).
Registration closes November 1, 2022 and includes a materials fee to cover supplies provided in class. Students will need to gather/purchase additional materials as well.
