A dynamic, intermediate weekend workshop specifically designed for artists, printmakers, photographers and designers who have some printmaking experience or already have an existing body of work but want to explore other applications on paper using a press.
Balance technique, content and expression. This intensive workshop focuses on building layers using color, composition and images to develop your own personal style. In this workshop you will discover applications for monotypes and non-toxic xerox litho transfers. In addition, we will experiment with the use of different stencils, chine colle, and trace monotypes. Explore different methods to create backgrounds and foregrounds using texture, mark making and brushstrokes. Work with pattern, shape and personal imagery (from your own photographs or drawings) to create depth and dialog in your one-of-a-kind work. Personal attention will be given to individual projects so come prepared to work intuitively or with a plan to define your personal aesthetic.
