Monotype Studio Intensive with Stuart Shils
May 19-21, 2017 (9am-5pm) — Experience the joys and possibilities of monotype printmaking with an emphasis on color and abstraction in the shaping of the visual image.

Working from window views and in-studio drawings, students will employ graphic shorthand and visual memory to generate imagery that captures the essence of places and moments through color and form, exploring the intimate relationship between observation and abstract structure. Rather than enforcing Shils’ style, instruction will encourage artists to create prints that promote their personal voice and expression. Emphasis will be placed on the priority of the image over “correct” technique and how-to instruction. Visit website
