Online program, held over Zoom

You just need a device that can connect to Zoom, in order to participate in the class. The Zoom link and more information about materials and set-up will be sent upon registration.

ABOUT THE CLASS: Many effects can be achieved in monotypes that are not possible with any other printing technique. In gelatin monoprinting a jelly-like material (homemade or store bought) is used as the printing plate. The soft surface of the gelatin plate is ideal for capturing fine details. Participants will play with color, templates, and mark making to build a layers of imagery to produce one of a kind artwork.

ABOUT THE TEACHER: Karin Otto brings her background in arts administration, teaching, and fine arts to Waterfall Arts since 2012. Using a variety of print making techniques Karin’s work reflects the repetitive patterns of organic shapes and forms found in the natural world. As a long-time contributor to Waterfall Arts, Karin has curated and produced gallery exhibitions, coordinated events, taught classes and workshops, assisted with program planning, and manages the Kennedy Press. Prior to her life in Maine, Karin spent several years coordinating programming and curating exhibitions for a government funded Arts organization, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society, in Glasgow, Scotland. Karin also works as a Human Resources consultant for both for-profit and non-profit organizations. She sits on grant review committees for both the Maine Arts Commission and The Maine Community Foundation.
