A Virtual Workshop—Now 4 Hours!


Here is the perfect opportunity to bring drawing and printmaking together. Trace monotype or transfer drawing is a technique of transferring ink to paper. It has the immediacy of drawing but uses the principles of printmaking to create artwork brimming with texture and atmosphere. The class will begin with demonstrations of the various ways we can transfer ink to create a trace monotype. Students will work on their own prints with guidance and individual attention. All levels welcome.


Registration closes February 17, 2021 to allow time for students to purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.


PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
