Kitchen Table Monotype

July 20 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Saturday, July 20, 10 AM-5 PM

with Joyce Silverstone

Have you ever felt inspired by the work of Paul Klee? Does the soft suggestion of ground and form combined with narrative or abstract line drawings speak to you? Learn the techniques that he used, and bring them into your studio – no presses required. Spend a day exploring the simple method of transferring ink to paper through hand pressure and the touch of a tool. Subtle, direct mark-making is the pleasure of this printing technique, always full of expressive possibilities.

Through demonstrations and practice throughout the day, become fluent in transfer drawing: inking methods, choosing papers for the process, and using simple registration systems which allow for printing multiple plates for color play and line variation.

No printmaking experience is needed, just a desire to slow down and enjoy taking in the world through touch. Participants will create a small series of related monotype prints.
