Monotypes are fun, spontaneous, and accessible. This workshop will introduce participants to the gel plate monoprint process, which we will use to create a series of portraits. Gel plates are easy to use and allow one to explore different colors, patterns, and techniques. Because each copy is unique, we’ll create several versions of a portrait in just one printing session. Join us!
