Explore experimental and traditional monoprint methods in this five-day workshop. Students will discover unconventional tools to create various textures using both oil and water-based mediums with stenciling to build layers. These methods combine the richness of oil-based ink with translucency of watercolor to create dynamic printed imagery. Various short demonstrations throughout the workshop will teach offset printing onto stencils, reductive and additive inking, chine-collé and applying texturized ink with alterative tools. Students should be prepared to try new methods of mark making and are also encouraged bring previous plates/matrixes and works they wish to experiment with and expand. End this workshop with a deep understanding of how versatile, expansive, and dynamic monoprint can be!
