• How To Monotype with Pigment Sticks & Encaustic with arts educator and artist Kelly McGrath, Sept. 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
A monotype is a unique image or mark created on a plate using a fluid or gelled material. The result is a single image that exists somewhere between printmaking and painting.
In this workshop, participants will learn how to use a couple of different materials in the monotype process. They will take an approach that allows for a balance of control and spontaneity that produces immediate results, which means they can create a number of prints in a short amount of time!
Cost of the workshop is $110 for guests and $90 for View members. Register by Sept. 21.
