Spring and Summer Workshops White River Jct., VT

Pronto Plate Lithography is a technique you will want to have in your arsenal, as it can reproduce a variety of images both hand-drawn and painterly, or photo-based. Pronto plates operate on the antipathy between oil and water, are fairly simple to master, and relatively inexpensive. In this printmaking workshop you will learn how to create images using simple materials such as ball point pen, acrylic floor wax, sharpie, crayon, and if desired, laser copies of photo-based imagery. The plates can be cut and/or layered to create multi-colored prints. This is a great class for beginners and professional artists alike interested in learning a new and extremely versatile technique. Participants should expect to create a portfolio of completed prints. York, ME
Monotypes and Monoprints
Tentative date: Saturday and Sunday, June 1 – 2 10am-4am

In this workshop, we will explore a variety of approaches to creating monoprints – prints based on an underlying matrix that can be printed in multiple different ways, and monotypes, completely unique prints. Both are often referred to as “painterly” prints because they frequently defy the strict technical rules that govern many printmaking processes. Learn to employ transparent and extender base for important in layering. Depending on time and focus we might add screen printing with water-based media as an add-on. Come prepared to experiment!
