Workshop

Paint & Monoprint Collage

Jun 03 - Jun 08 2018 Rhinebeck, NY
Discover an exciting new means of creative expression by combining collage and paint with monoprinting techniques.

Explore the back-and-forth play of spontaneity and intention that characterizes the creative process and discover a whole new world of artistic possibility. Guided by artist Jane Davies, we combine collage and paint with monoprinting techniques, learn to layer colors, patterns, and textures on the GelliArts gel plate, and create gorgeously printed collage papers. In a fun and adventurous environment, we integrate monoprint and collage techniques using masks and stencils, and build images directly on a paper substrate.

The boundaries between painting, monoprinting, and collage disappear as we gain a fluidity of process and immerse ourselves in an exciting new medium of creative expression. Throughout the week, we learn to connect directly to our intuition, and discover new tools and techniques that will shift us into a more spontaneous way of working.

Experienced painters will find this a refreshing way to re-energize their art practice.
