w/ Cara Luneau

This workshop is open to just 4 participants each month so register early if you’d like a space. All materials, workstations, tools and inks will be provided with the exception of paper which I will provide for cost. Beginners and experienced printmakers are welcome. Each month will include a quick demo of a monotype technique: additive and subtractive methods, the use of stencils, chine colle, collage, layering, working with ghost images, and plate and paper registration.  We will use Akua nontoxic, water-soluble inks. Incorporating mixed-media elements, such as watercolor crayons, pastels, and drawings will be encouraged. Each participant will have lots of work time and the opportunity to play, experiment and go home with original prints. All prints will be made on a small etching press.

Most materials are provided – inks, additives, stencil material, plates, tools, cleaning supplies, and much more. There will be a short materials list for participants as well.

Instructor: Cara Luneau’s statement:

As a painter, I experienced a printmaking revelation a few years ago in Mexico. Since that time, I have become immersed in printmaking studio work with the help of several master printers. With a background in painting and drawing I presently work in monotype, painting, collage, and as the founder, administrator, and host of Art Workshops Boulder. I studied drawing and painting as an undergraduate at the University of New Hampshire and have continued studies with numerous wonderful and gifted artists in workshops and privately.  

This workshop will take place in north Boulder. The cost is $75 per session. Payment is required to hold a spot. Please contact artworkshopsboulder@gmail.com with questions or to register.
