Bert Yarborough Using the Print: Mixed-Media Printmaking August 19 to August 24, 2018 Tuition: $650 Workshop: 9am-Noon Discipline: Printmaking OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

The directness and immediacy of monotype printing is an excellent vehicle for artists desiring to expand the possibilities of image making. Participants will be introduced to a variety of monotype printing techniques, such as watercolor, trace monotypes, stencils and ghost printing. Emphasis will be placed on experimenting with these techniques and others, while applying traditional drawing, painting and collage processes to the prints. The main objective will be the investigation of process, change and the development of each persons unique visual language.

Ten sheets of white BFK Rives (22 x30 inches) will be provided as part of the materials fee. Additional sheets may be purchased from the Work Center at $5 per sheet.
