Color and the Variable Print Matrix

July 8, 2018 – July 14, 2018

Beauvais Lyons

During this workshop students learn about the combined use of intaglio, relief and lithographic matrixes to produce monoprints. Various methods of creating printing matrixes are covered, including dry-point and engraving from clear polycarbonate plates, relief transfers in monoprinting, and polyester plate lithography. They are all suitable for printing in various combinations on an intaglio press. Registration systems and approaches to color printing are also explored. During class, students are encouraged to explore their personal forms of expression. Open to all skill levels.
