Artists with some experience who are interested in developing their skill with the monotype print making process and painting

Join artist Brenda Malkinson in an innovative monotype printmaking workshop that combines painting and printmaking techniques. Monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints made by applying (and removing) inks with a paintbrush or a roller to a plate and then printing the image onto paper.
The workshop will be an exploration of monotype printmaking with water-based Akua-Kolor monotype inks. This workshop will explore a number of different methods by hand and by press resulting in rich, layered and complex prints.  Monotype is a great way for painters to expand the scope of their practice and to be introduced into the magical world of printmaking.

Explore the Language of Colour!

Colour is the single most expressive element in the painter’s vocabulary. Increasing that vocabulary and building a personal library of colour through the development of a colour journal while exploring hands-on technique and demonstrations is the goal of this two-day workshop with Peter Ivens.
Participants will engage in one or more colour-related projects that will stimulate other ways of interpreting and understanding paint and colour. Using an open-handed approach to employ a broad range of possibilities of acrylic colour, participants will balance colour theory exercises with an intuitive exploration of paint handling and tools.
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in open critique and discussion, work outside of their comfort zones, and have fun! The workshop begins with a Friday night lecture and display of Peter’s work on location in the Art Gallery of St. Albert.
