Wild Things: Exploring Monotype

September 16 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

$100.00 – $140.00

Join Lucky Platt for a full day immersion in this uniquely expressive, accessible and nontoxic printmaking form. A monotype print is sometimes referred to as the “painterly print”, as the ink can be applied to the plate much like a painter would use a brush, paint, and medium on canvas. A monotype plate produces one unique print, but the ink remaining on the plate after being run under the etching press — the ‘ghost’ image — can provide a starting point for a second plate or even a series of related prints, with wonderful narrative possibilities. In order to narrow the endless possibilities for subject matter, we’ll focus on Wild Things as a theme or point of departure for imagery.

Please feel free to bring items collected from the wild to draw from, or a picture of your favorite animal or other wildlife you feel a connection with, or other related images. All levels of experience with printmaking are welcome, painters and illustrators especially welcome! All materials supplied but some special printmaking paper will be available for purchase during class for $1+ per piece.

Author-illustrator Lucky Platt creates books for children in her lakeside rural Maine studio. She works in a range of traditional art mediums, and her stories explore themes of resilience, healing, positive self expression and inclusion. She has presented art and writing workshops for children and adults through the Maine Crafts Association, Schoodic Arts for All, the Maine Arts Commission and Rockland Public Library, and has shown her artwork in galleries and non-traditional/unexpected art spaces in Maine and New York.
