Two printmaking workshops coming up…one in Laguna Beach on October 24th & 25th and the second workshop in Palm Desert on November 13th, 14th, and 15th.
Monoprinting is a unique method of working in multiple images, incorporating the immediacy of painting with printmaking methods by repeating and reworking personal imagery and symbols. Monoprinting is a fun and spontaneous way of expressing your inner muse and you can work from realistic to abstract, there are infinite possibilities.
