SUNDAY, AUGUST 19, 10AM – 3PM with a 1/2 hour lunch break
Learn the technique of monotype printing with artist and instructor Kris Sader this Summer at The Harlow. This workshop is open to anyone interested; whether experienced or novice. Monoprinting offers the opportunity of color mixing/interactions, and mark making that allows for the luminosity of the paper to add excitement to the print. Learn to understand viscosity of ink, modify ink, and lay down an even layer of ink on a transparent surface.
Prepare 4 plates with the basics of one image and then register the plates to paper on the press. We will use process colors, blue, magenta and yellow for the 3 color plates and if a key plate is desired choice of color is open. All this will be accomplished with Kris Sader running a complete demo (brief in duration) from mixing the ink to printing the plates and lifting the image. Then the class will split into groups and make a print together to gain hands on skill before working on their own image for a 3 plate monotype and key plate.
Pack a lunch and make a day of it! All materials are included, but please bring a 12X9 basic line drawing (to use for registration). This is a basic drawing as opposed to a finished drawing and can be on a basic white piece of paper. Ages 15 & up.
Space is limited to 10 participants, sign-up today by calling 207-622-3813 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
