Monoprint Workshop with Alice Galick


Fri-Sun, Apr 13-15       ADULTS

Creating a monoprint can be a quick or complicated process — with layers of transparency — or a collage of stencils — or using the press to layer the color and shapes into a composition — or transfer printing can offer lines and definition to your work. In this fun weekend workshop with master printmaker Alice Galick, you will have the opportunity to explore and experiment with all types of monoprinting. This workshop will offer the opportunity to make beautiful prints and learn the many possibilities for “painterly” and spontaneous work. You will leave with your own unique (“mono”) work of art!  This class is limited to just 8 participants. 

The workshop will begin with an informational introduction from 5-7pm on Friday evening including:

  • demo during which we’ll discuss printmaking’s special papers
  • use and courtesies of the studio space
  • inks and properties
  • individual workspace set-up 

This will allow students to leap in on Saturday morning with ideas and plans — you'll have a productive day and create many prints. On Sunday you will continue your studio work and add to works done on Saturday. All levels are welcome! Tools, equipment, and paper are provided, and each student is asked to bring:

  • cloth rags
  • pencil and sketch pad
  • a bottle of vegetable oil ( for cleaning up)
  • rubber gloves
  • a portfolio or large newsprint pad to carry home finished work
  • a roll of paper towels
