Instructor: Marina Ancona
Monday - Friday

9am - 12pm
This printmaking workshop is open to artists of every level. Using a range of new and traditional techniques based in the monotype and collagraph process, artists will develop skills while completing a personal and meaningful new body of work. In this collaborative environment, artists move toward a fluency in translating their individual artistic visions into print.
Participants will learn how to develop an image, how to transfer the image to paper, and how to print with primary emphasis placed on the development of each class member’s aesthetic concerns. The class will begin with group demos covering basic oil-based monotype and collagraph techniques then move to more advanced chine-colle and Xerox lithography processes. We will also be working with multiple plates, second pulls (ghosts), stencils wet and dry paper and a variety of mixed approaches.
