This workshop is ideal for artists who love to draw and paint directly and spontaneously. Monoprints incorporate draftsmanship and direct painting with printmaking. This workshop approaches monoprinting in a unique way; draw and paint in color with rollers, brushes, palette knives and explore how to use found materials creating textures that enhance the atmosphere and mood of a picture. We will focus on pulling both light out of a dark background as well as working dark on light. Students who love to draw find freedom using these techniques, their color sense is expanded and their drawing abilities can evolve to a higher level. All levels of experience welcome.
