Hands-on Workshops


Covid-19 info: In an effort to minimize any risk of covid-19 spread in the Galisteo Street Studio in Santa Fe, clear acrylic barriers are being installed between all work stations. A minimum of 6 feet is to be maintained between each person using the space, face masks are required, and a routine of conscientious daily disinfecting will be required of all workshop participants. These provisions will remain in effect until further notice.


Using monotype as a primary mark making technique this 5 day workshop focuses on the use of many plates and collage elements to create richly layered compositions. Rather than trying to compose on just one surface you will learn how to think in layers where many options become available in one or more impressions. While a monotype plate is in progress you may decide to incorporate a background plate and perhaps a collage element or even an ImagOn or Solarplate. By having numerous surfaces to work from your options become endless and the mixing and matching of imagery has the potential to move you into very exciting new directions. This fully instructional workshop is suitable to all levels of experience and runs 9-5 each day with a  lunch break. Additional open studio work time is included after instruction Monday- Thursday.

workshop is limited to 6 participants

$825 plus paper, specialty plates and tax.
