Oil Monotypes, or
How a Painter Can Become a Printmaker Fast and Easy!
This demonstration will cover a basic printmaking process for painters, using oil paint, although the same technique can be used with acrylic paint. Using your current oil painting supplies and some simple tools, you can create beautiful, unique prints. It can easily be taken into the field for plein air monotyping. You will get the opportunity to experience applying paint to the plexiglass matrix and making a print at the end of the demonstration.
Our November 2018 monthly meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 20th from 6:30-9pm.

All are welcome – this workshop is open to members and non-members. Feel free to bring along a friend! We’d love to see you there to try some new things and explore your creativity!
