Workshop Overview

In this workshop, we'll create monotypes inspired by our surroundings, embracing the spontaneous essence of the medium as our guide. The workshop will support various interpretations of your desired subject matter including representational, abstract, imagined or direct observation from our surroundings. Utilizing brayers, cotton cloths, brushes, and various tools, we'll apply and remove ink on plexiglass plates, later running them through a printing press to create unique original artworks.

The workshop combines instruction, demonstration, and individual work time, covering a spectrum of monotype techniques. Emphasis will be on light, value, impulse, experimentation, and, most importantly, having fun throughout the creative process.

About the Instructor(s)

Nanette Wallace’s gestural monotypes are created as an emotional response to the world around her, with an especially deep connection to water, light, and nature. She approaches her work with an emphasis on experimentation and intuition, allowing the spontaneous nature of the monotype to guide her. While Nanette works primarily as a monotype printmaker and oil painter, her career path also included working as a graphic artist, illustrator, and letterpress printer. She is an award winning artist, featured widely in solo, invitational, and juried exhibitions and well as print publications, nationally and internationally.
