Color Theory Through Monotype
June 9 @ 10:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm$460.00
Friday-Sunday, June 9-11, 10 AM – 5 PM
with Joyce Silverstone
Delve into color theory applied to monotype printmaking! This workshop will use exercises that will stretch how you see color in the world and experience the prints and paintings of artists that use color at the core of their work. You’ll be able to take this knowledge of color mixing and layering and apply it to your own prints.
Akua Intaglio Inks are particularly well suited for exploring how to print subtle layers of color. We will be printing on PETG plates that are thin, transparent plastic. We will print with complimentary and analogous colors by employing subtractive monotype techniques, and adding surface rolls to integrate and harmonize these printed colors. We will practice mixing beautiful neutral grays and earth tones to gain control and confidence while printing with color.
This workshop is open to beginners with no printmaking experience as well as experienced printmakers. It can also be used as an introduction or a refresher course for those familiar with monotype printmaking and how to work with Akua Intaglio Inks.
Joyce Silverstone is a graduate and traveling fellow of The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Her current body of work and her workshop teaching centers around layered multiple plate printing using monotype inking methods.
