Pochoir Monotype Printmaking

Saturday, July 27, 2019, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Pochoir Monotype is a variation of monotype using stencils to build layered images. Monotype printmaking can be daunting. By adding Pochoir Stencil Art to Monotype, artists can easily produce prints with layered color and amazing unpredictable pattern. Pochoir Monotype begins with the designing and cutting of stencils. Stencil forms can be simple or complex. Students may also use found stencil shapes; such as leaves and other organic material. Stencils are inked and layered face up on the inky mono plate. The first print is graphic and straightforward. Flipping, layering and re-inking the stencils and plate create the exciting second and subsequent prints. Students are asked to bring ideas for stencil/shapes, and organic materials such as leaves. All tools and materials for this workshop are provided; including BFK paper, mono plate, ink, brayers, modifiers and materials for making stencils. Instructor will have student examples to share. All levels are welcome. Please bring a lunch. The instructor, Ruth Santee, is a California artist whose work has been exhibited in museum, non-profit and gallery venues. She received a BFA from the College of Santa Fe, NM and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Santee is a recipient of the Cadogan Fellowship Award from the San Francisco Foundation and a recipient of a commission from the San Francisco Arts Commission. She is a tenured professor at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton CA. where she teaches printmaking, 2D Design and Color Theory.
