Oil and Water: Collagraph, Stencils and Monoprint with Sue Oehme

Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Snowmass Village

July 29 – August 2, 9 am – 5 pm

Tuition: $1,160, Studio Fee: $150, Registration Fee: $45

This versatile and dynamic monoprint workshop utilizes both water-based and oil-based media, printing from collagraph plates and stencils. Participants create textured plates by building up varied surfaces with acrylic mediums, along with using more traditional drypoint Plexiglass plates combined with collage materials and Duralar stencil shapes. These inspiring techniques work well with both abstract and representational imagery, adding new methods and visual effects to the printmaking practice. Each student is guided individually by the instructor, as well as offered group demos daily.
