TWO WORKSHOPS IN THE EXUMAS, BAHAMAS!

We're pleased to offer TWO monotype workshops in 2018 at our island print studio on Staniel Cay, in the Exumas, Bahamas.

Exploring Monotype in the Exumas: Mon, Feb 5th - Sun Feb 11th, 2018 

(LINK TO BROCHURE: Exploring Monotype in the Exumas)
Learn the art of monotype in a gorgeous location and explore the gorgeous cays of the Exumas. Monotype is essentially painting directly on a printing plate and transferring this "painting" onto paper using the pressure of an etching press. All levels of experience are welcome. This is a casual workshop with individual attention to accomplish the work and vacation you have in mind. Instruction on color, viscosity printing and numerouse mark-making techniques will be covered.
Fee: $2935 - $4495 (depending upon accommodation choice)


From Monotype to Collage and Back: Sat, Feb 24th - Fri, March 2nd

(LINK TO BROCHURE: From Monotype to Collage and Back)
Another option to continue learning the art of monotype, or to begin learning with a more experimental approach by adding collage to the mix. The class will learn to transform the textures inherent in the painterly process of monotype to create unique 
collages with the use of the printing press. Color and pattern will steer the design resulting in small, large and freeform finished works on paper. Different adhesives and Asian papers will be included in the discussion and fee. 
Fee: $3135 - $4995 (depending upon accommodation choice)

Learn the art of monotype printmaking at a waterfront studi. Accommodations and travel will be courtesy of the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, which is your quintessential Bahamian outpost. Founded in 1956, and still owned and managed by the family. This is the ideal trip for someone who wants to experience island life in a temperate climate, and one who wishes to be inspired by gorgeous colors of the ocean. Please contact us for more information.
