Island-based instructor Diane Crago offers step by step instruction in a small group setting. Combining painting techniques with printmaking to create an original monotype is a great way to learn about both mediums. Class runs four consecutive Wednesday evenings. Students will produce a finished print, beginning with the press then adding elements through hand-printing and brush applied color.
Discover the element of surprise in printing with this technique! Monotype is one of the most direct and traditional methods of printmaking and yet it allows an infinite variety of unique expression. Diane is committed to supporting the emerging artist inside all of her students, and will walk you through all the stages to a completed print. She will be available to meet with interested students for an additional class session to complete work, date and time tbd.
Pierre Bonnard said, “Art is what happens in the corrections”. There are no mistakes in this class…only a wonderful way to free up your art and your vision.
