About the class

Registration for this workshop will close on October 27, 2023.

Painterly monotypes are an exciting and fresh way to approach image making. Perfect for painters who want to explore new ideas and get results quickly. We will be using water-based intaglio inks, acrylic printing plates, and an etching press. The instructor will demonstrate how to use the inks with brayers, brushes and paper towels, and give full instruction on using the electric press. Printmaking paper, inks, and all other supplies are included in the materials fee, but bring a few sketches or images of ideas/inspiration. All levels are welcome, no prior printmaking experience necessary. Completion of this workshop qualifies participants to attend sessions of Printmaking Open Studio. Note: bring snacks or a bag lunch along with a water bottle.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
