Catherine Kernan, Friday - Sunday, 10am – 4pm, 3-day intensive workshop, limited to 8, $360 members, $400 non-members. An intensive exploration with soy-based Akua inks and ink modifiers, this workshop provides the context, information, and inspiration to create richly layered monotypes and monoprints in series and variations. With particular attention to mixing and modifying inks for viscosity monotype rolling, we exploit basic additive and reductive monotype techniques. Overprinting, off-set transfers, stamps, stencils, ghost images and chine collé, using a variety of matrices increase the opportunities for "controlled accidents" and "calculated spontaneity." Emphasis in the workshop is on identifying and enhancing the synergy between each participant's own way of making art and the processes of printmaking. Demonstrations, one-on-one consultation and critiques encourage individual direction and the pursuit of projects in depth.
