VISCOSITY PRINTS – using rollers to repeat shapes on multiple plates, very exciting, with challenges
Also, see images in the exhibit next post down!
Heather and I shared a studio many years ago and, at times, found our work traveling in the same direction. We have maintained friendship and interest in each others work over time and distance. These images have connected and it is a joy to bring it together.
Concord Art Association will be hosting a demonstration of the monotype process, beginning at 10:30am on Wednesday Oct. 9.
I’ll work with the techniques that I’ve been using to produce the blackbird series.

Curious about monotypes? I’ll be teaching the following workshop and classes over the next few months.

MONOTYPE: The Painted Print from an Etching Press
Whether you are an experienced artist looking for new ideas, or someone who has never put paint on paper, this technique has endless possibilities and very exciting results.
In this class, oil printmaking ink will be used to paint, draw into, roll, wipe away or dab onto a plexiglas plate. The image will go through a press onto printmaking paper creating unexpected and surprising results. An etching press will be used to transfer your image to the paper. Participants will learn how to modify the inks and explore brush and roller techniques. If you already know the basics, you can move forward at your own pace. Individual guidance will be provided.
4 week class, Tuesday, Nov. 12-3, from 10 am – 2 pm
