During this workshop, students will discover applications for monotypes and the transfer of imagery using inked Xerox copies as a plate with non-toxic paper lithography on an etching press. The emphasis is on balancing process, play, and content by building rich layers of color, composition, and imagery. Participants will explore a variety of materials and methods to create depth and space between backgrounds and foregrounds using texture, mark making and brushstrokes. By incorporating pattern, shape and imagery from your own photographs and drawings, you will create dialog and narrative in your one-of-a-kind work. Open to all skill levels.
