Wednesday – Saturday, August 2-5, 2017, 10-5
$450 non-members, $400 members
$50 materials fee includes plates, ink, paper, model fees

This intensive workshop will cover a variety of monotype and drypoint techniques using the landscape and the human figure as vehicles for exploring line, color, composition and expressiveness in printmaking. 

Participants will go out into the landscape to be inspired and will learn how to find what interests them and then how to interpret that vision into an image that can range from representational to abstract.  A live model will also make an appearance as artists use the human figure to learn about creating space, volume and expressiveness in their monoprints.

Through demonstrations and practice, participants will learn how to work with Akua Inks doing trace monotype, additive and subtractive monotype, viscosity printing and drypoint on plastic plates.  These techniques will be combined to create rich, layered images.

All levels of printmakers are welcome in addition to students without printmaking background.
