This workshop is full – call to put your name on the waiting list.

Using Akua Intaglio Inks, we will explore the basics of color mixing, and color layering in simple monotypes. Together we will look at how artists from Vuillard to Frankenthaler have used color theory to make their choices about color in their prints and paintings. The painterly print is a perfect medium for making quick and surprising discoveries about color. While creating subtractive plates, and adding simple stencil shapes, our focus will be on what color to use and how to arrive at beautiful color experiences. The color principles covered in this workshop can later be applied to any type of printmaking and is open to experienced and beginning printmakers or painters.
