Intro to Monotype Printing: 3 Colors, 3 Layers, 4 Shapes

Kala Gallery and Classroom • 2990 San Pablo Avenue BerkeleyCA  94702 Organized by Kala Art Institute

About this event

This workshop covers the basic steps of how to make multi-layered monotypes using a printing press. Keeping things simple, we will use a 3 x 3 x 4 format: three colors, three layers amd 4 shapes. Participants will make their own stencils of simple shapes from Duralar film (a more versatile alternative to acetate). Using brayers to roll non-toxic water soluble block inks onto plexi plates, participants will use a different color for each of the three-layers. The magic happens as we build up the layers of color over the stenciled shapes! No previous printmaking experience is needed for this introductory workshop.
