Discover the endless possibilities and unique qualities of the monotype process, an image that combines painting, drawing, and printmaking techniques. It was a favorite way of making art for Edgar Dagas, Mary Cassatt, and Ganguin as it offers a spontaneous way of working and the freedom to explore and experiment with images and a wide selection of materials. A painting is developed on a flat plate with oil or water based inks, paints, crayons, and/or pencils and then transferred to paper or other absorbent surfaces. We will explore painting by hand and with an etching press. The instructor will provide oil and water based inks, plates and paper.
All classes are held in the George D. Widener Studio, formerly the carriage house for the Woodmere estate. Transformed into a studio with north light, easy access, and free parking. Woodmere's studio provides a professional setting for a variety of art experiences. Classes and workshops are taught by the finest professional artists and instructors in the region. Registration is on a first-come, first served basis.
