Solarplate & Monotype Workshops with Ron Pokrasso
April 16, 2018 - April 20, 2018
Ron Pokrasso travels the world to teach printmaking. If you want to immerse yourself in ink for a week, or you need to take a giant leap with your artwork, this is the way to do it.
This workshop is designed to bring together the contemporary intaglio platemaking process of Solarplate with monotype and collage to create unique, mixed media images, monoprints and variable editions. Using Akua inks and modifiers you will learn a wide range of techniques possible in the monotype process and continue through the use of chine colle, collage, drawing, and multiple plate projects. Students will be encouraged to pursue their artistic vision using monotype as a mark making tool.
With Solarplate participants may draw, paint, collage, photocopy, or use digital images to create a positive transparency. Various inking, printing and registration techniques will be taught. The notion of the “artist as an inventor” will be stressed as mixed media techniques open the door to limitless opportunities. The approach is energetic and open, as each student’s individual style will help dictate the direction of the workshop. This workshop is suitable to all levels of experience.
Workshop fee: $750. A $200 deposit will hold your spot. The materials provide are Akua inks, plexi plates, three 8 x 10 Solarplates, tarlatan, newsprint and paper towels. We will have additional Solarplates for purchase along with printmaking papers.
