Workshop & Gallery Tour
Thursday, July 11, 6:30 p.m. | Free Admission
Master printmaker Linda Lyke will offer a free Monoprint workshop and tour patrons through her exhibition Field Notes currently in the Muckenthaler gallery.
The Painterly Print: Printmaking workshop on Monotype by Linda Lyke.
Learn to make your own monotype, a unique print, which is transferred onto paper by pressure from an etching press. Monotype printing will be created on a durolar surface with oil based etching ink and then transferred to paper by means of an etching press.
Paper, durolar plates, brayers, some drawing tools, watercolor brushes and ink will be provided for the workshop.
Participants please bring a watercolor brush, (if you have one) and a pencil. Also, please bring an image that you have drawn or a photograph you would like to use as inspiration for your monotype. The image should be in black and white no bigger than 7” x 9” or smaller.
Printmaker Linda Lyke vividly captures the spontaneous and immediate sense of discovery that stems from close and careful observation of nature. This body of work evolved from Lyke’s own particular observations of birds and megafauna in Amboseli National Park and the Maasai Mara in Kenya, as well as in her home city of Los Angeles.
