Drypoint and Color with Akua Demo Artist Joyce Silverstone

April 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - April 5, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

In this workshop we will create repeatable drypoint plates that can be inked and rolled using color monotype methods.  To warm-up on the first day we will begin with guided mark-making experiences which will serve as the basis for making drypoint lines into plastic plates. These plates will be inked in an intaglio manner and printed on dampened rag papers. With the introduction of colorful monotype mark-making, experimental moments of composing variations between these two techniques will be explored. Playful juxtapositions of line and color guide this inquiry.

 All levels of printmaking experience are welcome. Get to know the fundamentals of ink, paper and press use, along with the tools of the studio, the unique qualities of Akua Water-based Inks, and innovative monoprint methods.
