LISA MACKIE MONOTYPE/MONOPRINT WATER-BASED PRINTING WITHOUT A PRESS

$120 for 4 consecutive weeks

Deadline for registration is 7 PM on the day before the first class. Any registrations received after 7 PM the night before the first class of the session will receive the pre-recorded video of the first class (or classes missed if session already began). Be sure to include your email address.

Printing Without a Press will be presented in four – one hour sessions. Monotypes and monoprints will be printed by hand. Water-based inks, markers, and crayons are applied to a variety of  nonabsorbent surfaces to create exotic reticulating washes, bends and expressive brush strokes.

Specific water-based inks will be used while varying traditional Hanga woodblock methods. Gouaches and intense water-based pigments can be mixed with a range of vehicle bases, such as Nori. Gum Arabic, and Speedball extender base. The use of Akua ink, which is a soy based ink, will also be demonstrated. À poupée inking and chine-collé (collage through the press) as well as print paper/collage materials, archival gluing, tinting methods, and proper presentation will be discussed.

We will chronicle the unique print through multiple reactivated and drawn again images. Endless variations will be created using single and multiple print matrixes. Artists will find it exciting to take this course more than once. Some processes will be repeated and new techniques will be introduced.  *Discover fresh personal imagery through print progressions!

Each session will include a major phase of the print project. At the end of the presentation time will be allocated for questions and answers via the internet. Participants may create their own test plates or images each week and submit them to a class Dropbox to receive Lisa’s and (if you wish) the classes comments during the session.

Develop a series of water-based monotypes/monoprints while following each lecture demonstration. This workshop will present so much info that will inform your future prints and artwork – Enjoy!

Use your drawings, collages, prints, photo ideas–or plan to work extemporaneously. This workshop will fulfill beginners to advanced printmakers.

Suitable for all levels, no experience necessary! Ages 16+

Thursdays 1 PM: October 1, 8, 15, and 22
