Printmaking

There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun. - Pablo Picasso

    Printmaking Workshop: Monoprint Explorations

    with Roxanne Faber Savage

    Explore the use of printmaking as an open and playful medium. In this class, we will learn a range of monoprint techniques including painterly monoprint, trace monotype, stencils, drypoint on plexiglass and chine-collé techniques. Roxy will present weekly print demonstrations, including color mixing and plate wiping methods; proper press procedures, layering & “ghosting” imagery and gluing techniques.

    Each lesson will build on processes and techniques taught in previous classes.  Water-soluble “Akua” inks will be used. Roxy will work with the group and one-on-one with students. Participants should bring paper first class; we will review print papers 1stclass. 

    Artists taking this class should have a level of competence with art materials and techniques. Intermediate to advanced levels welcome.
