What a wonderful time Lise and I had hosting the Introduction to Monotype Workshop this past Saturday! We made six wonderful new friends, and soaked up how good it felt to have the studio humming with joyful creativity.Â My, it will seem so dull when I work on my own!
Sunghee first shared notes on the history of monotype from the 16th century to modern artists -did you know Edgar Degas created over 400 monotypes!? She brought many examples of her own work to highlight a variety of approaches to monotype.
After a demonstration , the six students dipped into the inks and began working on deductive monotypes.Â Â It was so exciting to pull those first prints!Â Sparks began to fly, and we all dove in to play with another plate.
