Creation of Subtractive Monotype with Gabriel Jules Jules Gabriel

10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

$15 per person

During a workshop with artist Gabriel Jules, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the process of monoprinting while creating a subtractive monotype. While Currier & Ives successfully utilized the process of lithography to produce thousands of prints over the course of seven decades, many printmakers found other methods more appealing.  Monoprinting, also known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques, is essentially a printed painting. Register by calling (302) 674-2111 ext. 101 or .
