This workshop is a special request from a number of printmakers who are challenged by the idea of taking their skills in painting with watercolors, acrylics and oils and adapt it to printmaking using a standard size plexiglass 22”x 30. Genesis uses masa paper, oil-based inks painted on the plexiglass and pressed with a large wooden spoon. Genesis' all over color compositions of different shapes and textures is whimsical fun.
Friday morning will be the primary demonstration and afternoon independent work with help from Genesis and other print makers. (There will be a waiting list for one -day registrations, once the workshop reaches its minimum of 8 two day printers.) Then the one -day registrations will be admitted on a first come first serve basis for only Fridays.
Printmakers are encouraged to bring their own supplies, especially if you have a 22”x30” piece of plexiglass. If no, you have two-options. We will have extra plexiglass to be shared. Or you can purchase your own by sending us an additional $40 for a plexiglass you will keep after the workshop.
Saturday Genesis will demonstrate another monotype but the presentation will be more of a demonstration not a how to lesson that is planned for only on Friday.
