Summer Workshop Program 2023
In this workshop participants will explore the merging of two processes: drawing and monotype screen printing. We will develop a set of drawings to work from, although students are encouraged to come with some sketched ideas/concepts that can further be developed during class time. Basic sketches will be transformed into complete compositions using water-based drawing media and a silkscreen with and without stencils. This is a fully exploratory workshop that encourages students to come with an open mind and be willing to investigate and apply the unique results from monotype screen printing to create successful compositions. This workshop is ideal for artists with no to limited printmaking knowledge, as well as more advanced and experienced printmakers.Nabil-Gonzalez-Materials-List-SP23.pdf
