Monotype Workshop: 3 Colors, 3 Layers, 4 Shapes

Monotype Print by Liz Schiff

This introductory 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.

Accessibility – This class takes place in the San Pablo Community Classroom, located on the first floor. Please email classes@kala.org regarding any  accessibility needs prior to enrolling so we can assess if we are able to accommodate you safely and efficiently.
