The possibilities of watercolor monotype range  from wonderful color, atmospheric washes, and signature brush work to bold graphic statements.  This flexible print medium is a favorite among those enjoying a painterly approach.

You will learn the process where watercolor has been allowed to dry, rewetted and lifted from plastic paper plates and running dampened paper through the press.  One can layer color, achieve rich surfaces and images and register one layer to the next with ease.  In this one-day workshop you will learn about all the necessary materials and begin to master and customize these techniques to suit your own art and printmaking needs.  Watercolor monotype will benefit both “plein-air” and abstract painters.

There is a high demand for this workshop. When the limit of students has been reached, and your registartion through the website is not going through, please send your contact info, to be placed on the waiting list:


Materials to bring: Your own assortment of WC brushes, paper towel, 11x14” newsprint pad, source images or drawings. The rest of the materials are covered by the lab fee ($15) payable to the teacher at the end of the class.
