Monoprinting is a simple printmaking process where ink is transferred directly from the plate to paper. Washable markers, pen, ink, and Plexiglas will be used to create original works of art in this fun and simple workshop designed to introduce guests to the principles of printmaking.
Taught by artist and educator Janet Gonzalez.
Janet Gonzalez’s artistic practice has always centered around linework, textures, and the physicality of art. Whether she uses a paintbrush or texture from an existing object, or experiments by letting her colors puddle and dry, texture has always been at the forefront of her artwork. The process itself is an adventure. Janet attended the College of Staten Island where she got her BS in graphic design and minored in studio art. She also interned at Manhattan Graphics Center where she continued to immerse herself in the art of printmaking.
