Make Monotypes in Colorado!


Registration opens tomorrow!: Create unique, one-of-a-kind monoprints by combining traditional and cutting-edge approaches in this one-week workshop at Anderson Ranch in Colorado. Workshop participants will use the Anderson Ranch Fabrication Lab and the Patton Print Shop to examine how laser-cut stencils, blocks and overlays can expand the possibilities of a painterly, playful and multilayered approach to making hand-pulled prints.

New Approaches to Monoprinting is taught by Lari Gibbons, an artist who explores new and traditional approaches to printmaking through collaborative, interdisciplinary projects. She is Professor at the University of North Texas and also directs P.R.I.N.T, a nonprofit fine art press. She received an M.F.A. from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln.
