"Monotype Workshop with Stuart Shils"
May 18-20, 2018
 

Experience the joys and possibilities of monotype printmaking with an emphasis on color and abstraction in the shaping of the visual image. Through the monotype process, students will understand pictorial structure (design) and mood as the keys to visual coherence and graphic strength. Working from window views and in-studio drawings, students will employ graphic shorthand and visual memory to generate imagery that captures the essence of places and moments through color and form, exploring the intimate relationship between observation and abstract structure. Rather than enforcing Shils’ style, instruction will encourage artists to create prints that promote their personal voice and expression. Space is limited to 10 students.
