Workshops and Schedule
Workshops include all materials, but you are encouraged to bring drawings, ideas, and any special material you would like to use.  Please register one week in advance!

Bright Spot
Drop -In Sundays
Monoprint/Monotype
Anytime between 11-3pm
$30

Bright Spot was designed to allow participants a stress free environment to learn about the beauty of monoprint/monotype. 
Drop in any Sunday between the hours of 11-3.  For $30, you will receive 5 papers to print on, a 5” x 7” plate, ink and press assistance. Imagery will be developed by painting or rolling ink onto a plexiglass plate.  Choose to use simple stencils or textures, layering colors to enhance images. 
Each participant will choose one print to leave behind.  It will be adhered to a card and delivered to a resident at the Lutheran Augustana Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation.
It is my hope to have enough cards in a week to deliver to a wing in the facility, creating a Bright Spot for a patient.

Collagraph
TBA
$60 per session

Collagraph is a versatile medium and a great introduction to printmaking.  Creating plates out of low relief objects, heavy cardstock or file folders, masking tape layers, basically anything that changes the planar surface of a plate can be adhered and printed either by hand or with the press.  Think of it as making a crayon rubbing of a penny, and you will begin to understand how it works.
All supplies are included, but if you have a special, low relief object you would like to print, bring it along!
Space is limited to 4 people.
