Layers and Plates

Using monotype as the primary technique this 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 you have a monotype plate 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 will become endless and the mixing and matching of imagery has the potential to move you into very exciting new directions.
