Weekend of June 24th & 25th 2017, from 10am to 5pm
Instructor: Heather Aston
Join printmaker Heather Aston for a lively weekend for a course on the painterly techniques of making monotypes. This unique process provides the artist with using tools and materials that yield unparalleled results that are both innovative and surprising.
This printmaking process is one that involves transformation and discovery. There is a creative spontaneity in the painterly process of making monotypes and in this course the students will explore that while making oil-based monotypes. They will also learn other printmaking techniques such as liftprint, chine collé and multiple layering.
Participants will receive individual attention regarding drawing, painting, and composition. Along with technique students are introduced to different papers, materials, and the experience of working in a studio atmosphere. The course will open new possibilities for expression while exploring colour, form, different techniques and line.
There will be demonstrations, discussion and class critiques throughout.
