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
Using Charbonnel inks, a plexiglas plate, soft rollers, Q-tips, and a glass palette the image is created. The plexi plate is moved to an etching press and topped with a piece of Rives BFK paper. After a trip through the press the image is transferred to the paper.
