Saturday, November 9 @ 9am – 4pm
(with an hour break for lunch)
Join us for a one-day intensive workshop in monoprinting. Master Printer Andy Rubin will provide art educators an opportunity to reconnect with their own creative practice and experiment with a number of different approaches to image making that are both spontaneous and /or well planned. The morning session includes hands-on demonstrations of painting techniques, blend rolls, stencils, reductive techniques, transfers and registration tricks to inspire creative work. The afternoon session functions as an open studio for art teachers to concentrate on their own artistic ideas, creating unique images on paper run through an etching press. The monoprint process is very fun, fluid and accommodates all drawing styles and sensibilities. All inks, brayers, plates and paper are provided. The session will end with critique and show and tell.
