    Shake up your routine with a dive into monotype printmaking!

    Starting your work the same way every time is comfortable and can give you confidence in a good outcome . . . but it can also lead to boredom and get you stuck in predictability.  In this in-person one day workshop, Alexia will share printmaking tools and methods that are accessible to everyone (no etching press needed!), and we’ll explore how monotypes can be used as the starting point for dynamic, painterly pastel paintings—full of unique textures and surprises.

    The workshop will be held at Alexia’s home studio on her farm in Pepperell, Mass. Weather permitting, we may do some work outdoors, where there are views of the horses, pastures and gardens to paint. Bring your lunch for a picnic on the patio!

    Have you wanted to explore the possibilities of the PanPastel medium? This workshop is perfect for artists who have never tried PanPastel or artists that are ready to get more creative with the medium. The workshop will begin with an hour demo about color mixing, application techniques, layering and mark making. Attendees will then complete brief exercises utilizing the techniques before beginning their own masterpiece. The PanPastel will also be used in combination with soft pastel, and Lisa will bring her stencils for added experimentation. You’ll see how fast you can block in shapes and watch a painterly image emerge. Workshop attendees will leave the workshop with the knowledge and confidence to use PanPastel as part of their studio practice. Attendees are encouraged to work from their own photos.
