New! Watercolor Monoprints: The Floating Wash, Nov 4 & 5

Watercolor Monoprints: The Floating Wash
(deadline for Sign up-Oct 28)

Non-toxic watercolor monoprinting is a dynamic art form combining the colorful palette and radiant flow of watercolors with an unusual diversity of beautiful and compelling techniques unique to this process. You will learn proper use of an etching press, the correct numbering and signing of your prints, plus different approaches to the medium with emphasis on double plate printing of foliage. Watercolor washes on the plate's impermeable surface allows for a floating of color in a way no other medium can. You will also be taught how to do watercolor monotypes at home without a press. This exciting process loosens artistic tightness, inspires confidence and expands creativity. You need not have previous experience in either watercolors or printmaking to achieve beautiful results. The workshop fee includes supplies: a set of watercolors specific to this process, 8 sheets of printmaking paper, two printing plates and use of class materials.

Saturday & Sunday , November 4 & 5   9am-4pm  (limit of 6 people)
