The Power of Monotype

Levels: All

Offered: Sunday Afternoon, 8/18/19, 10am - 4pm

Instructor: Anouk Johanna

Watercolor Monotype is a wonderful alternative process for painters. Monotypes always have a chance factor which makes the process exciting and often adds an element of mystery. It is this transformative aspect that unleashes an unusual high level of spontaneous creativity. The most common response when we pull the print is “Wow!”…it’s usually a total surprise, nothing like what we thought and usually even better than we imagined it would be. It also is a relatively fast process in comparison to pure painting. Using Hot Press water color paper will give students the option to continue to build on their print using watercolor if desired as seen below.

Anouk will start the workshop with up to an hour of demos of various techniques and approaches. At the end there will be a constructive Group Critique and/or Feedback of students work. Students are encouraged to bring personal images to work from. There will be inspirational Hand Outs for all participants as well.
