Beginning Lithography + Monoprint Workshop

$750.00

Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $650
Material Fee: $50

In this lithography and monoprint workshop, you will get an introduction to the lithography process through the use of polyester lithography plates, as well as learn multiple monoprinting techniques including: trace monotype, painterly applications, stenciling, collage and image transfers. Lithography is centered around the basic principle that oil and water repel each other, using oily based drawing materials to create a stencil on the plate that is sponged with water as it is printed. You will learn to edition your lithographs as well as have the opportunity to layer multiple colors, textures and techniques through the monoprinting process. We will dive into the world of mixing color while experimenting with transparency and opacity to produce a suite of multi layered prints that are both fun and satisfying to create.The result will be a variable edition of prints and artist proofs produced over the course of this 5 day workshop.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day

Registration will open in early December. Please check back for updated information and cost.
