Viscosity Monotypes

January 8 – 10, 2021                                                                                                                                                                                            Friday – Sunday 9:15 am – 3:15 pm                                                                                                                                                                      Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA    register:http://www.capecodcreativearts.org

Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only using a manual press. Viscosity (means flowability of a liquid) inks are modified with oil or driers to be oily or stiff, so that one color repels another, with amazing results. Students are encouraged to make each print different, not to make an edition of exact replicas. An evocative, personal theme emerges with each print session. Contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises.  The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight.   The Glittering Sublime  viscosity monotype  15×15″ on Rives BFK

Non-Toxic Etching Multiple Plates 

April 2 – 4, 2021                                                                                                                                                        Friday – Sunday 9:15 am – 3:15 pm                                                                                                                        Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA    register:http://www.capecodcreativearts.org

Using copper plates and non-toxic techniques, this workshop will introduce contemporary and traditional approaches to etching using hard ground, drypoint, aquatint and lift ground to produce line, texture and tone. Intaglio lines and marks, etched into the copper plate with the Edinburgh Etch ferric chloride (“rusty water”) in a covered vertical tank, retain ink when carefully wiped with tarlatan, and printed on dampened paper with an etching press. Students will create a small learning plate, then a larger plate, which can be transferred to additional plates for multiple color prints. They will learn how to mix and modify color inks, hand wipe the plate, register and print proofs, and begin a small edition.                                   Buddha Treescape, etching multiple-plates 24×18″ on 30×22″ Arches white rag paper

 

Monotype/Familiar Places

August 6 – 8, 2021                                                                                                                             Friday – Sunday 9:15 am – 3:15 pm                                                                                                         Class held at Zavorskas Print Studio in South Orleans, MA    register:http://www.capecodcreativearts.org  

Students will bring images of familiar beloved places, people or objects to class each day and create painterly spontaneous images on smooth acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, produces a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations.                                                Ocean Refuge  monotype 18×27″ on 22×30″ Rives BFK white rag paper
