This intense, fun and creative workshop covers a wide range of techniques and marks possible in the monotype process and continues by adding collage, drawing, and multiple plates to create the final image. The notion of the "artist being able to create without boundaries for free creativity” is celebrated in this class. It is about surprise, play, experimentation and having fun. Individual needs and desires helps to direct this workshop.
Using Akua inks (water based and non-toxic) and modifiers, participants will begin with basic monotype techniques including ink mixing, additive/subtractive applications, stencils/templates, while conquering plate and paper registration. Traditional elements will also be included looking at composition and color combinations to strengthen each piece.
