RESPONDING TO NEW MATERIALS : MONOPRINTS & COLLAGE
This workshop is ideal for artists who love to draw and paint. Monoprints incorporate draftsmanship and direct painting with printmaking. Artists who love to draw find freedom using these techniques, their color sense is expanded, and their drawing abilities can evolve to a higher level. Participants will print and develop a variety of printed material during the first day that will be added to, collaged and re-developed during the second day of the workshop.
All levels of experience welcome.
What to expect:On the first day, we’ll begin by experimenting with Golden’s OPEN Acrylic Paints on Gelli Plates to create monoprinted papers. We will explore several different mark making techniques and generate a plethora of prints to collage.
On the second day, we will forage through our monoprints looking for color, pattern and texture to organize on a 12”x 12”wood substrate. Composing the loose monoprints, we will use Golden Mediums and Gels to create the final work of art.
