Instructor: Heather Wilcoxon
This is a one day intensive monoprint workshop. We will be using Aqua Water Based Inks, brayers, and brushes to paint on clear plexi glass plates, which you will print your images on paper using an etching press. I will demonstrate several methods such as reductive printing, viscosity printing, printing over your ghost print, using stencils, sponges and more.
This intensive workshop will inspire and enhance your own art practice.
Materials fee $20 payable to instructor at start of class.
