In this five-day workshop, participants will combine painterly and alternative techniques while briefly delving into the history of monoprints. This course is ideal for artists of all skill levels that want to learn or add a new approach to printmaking. Working on and off the press bed, participants will learn to construct and deconstruct an image while keeping the fluidity of a painting. Through demonstrations, students will learn water and oil-based inking processes using stencils, brushes, and various drawing materials to create several unique prints. This course will also explore low-tech mark-making using pochoir and foiling, perfect for additive effects or artists with limited press access. Leave this workshop with an expanded understanding of alternative printmaking and a series of new prints.
Mobility information: Participants will be working with hands and standing; some processes can be modified for limited mobility

Kat’s relationship with print media is an extension of their queerness, gender, and body. The printing press is an essential aspect of their work; acting, theoretically, as a genderless prosthetic for reproduction. They use an index of shapes and color as metaphors for a boundless and ever changing figure.
