Concept and Experience
Combining printmaking techniques with painted compositions offers a way to continually surprise yourself and loosen up, resulting in unexpected textures and happy accidents. This process-based workshop will encourage you to take risks, experiment, and incorporate new visual elements in your existing work.
Focusing on printmaking methods that do not require a press, Carolyn will demonstrate trace monotypes, stencils, rubber stamps, linoleum, gel medium "surprises", and rubbings. A spirit of experimentaiton and collaboration will be encouraged as you work to combine and layer different techniques. A group critique will close the workshop.
Open to intermediate to advanced painters.
