Monoprinting and Mixed Media Workshop WITH MEGHANA GAUTHIER


10:00 AM – 4:00 PM

$80 + Supply List

Class Limit: 12 Students

Any Skill Level – Youth or Adult

This 1-day workshop is a dynamic introduction to monoprinting using your choice of gel or plexi plate. Instructor will demo on both. We will work quickly to generate several prints in 3 steps:

1) Create abstract backgrounds using printmaking inks/open acrylics and additive/reductive techniques resulting in atmospheric landscapes, whimsical still life/floral or simply pure abstract compositions.

2) Add 2-3 layers of shapes with stencils, masks and glazing to add depth.

3) Tie it all together using mixed media such as acrylic inks/fluid acrylics, pastels, crayons and/or coloured pencils. Instructor will also bring some collage material.

About the Instructor:

She is based in Edmonton with her family and she is a proud graduate of UofA Extension’s Visual Arts program. After 10 years of diligently learning, experimenting, and producing, she is now excited to share her inspiration and process.
