5 Day Monotype Printing Workshop in
San Miguel de Allende
March 30 - April 3, 2020
9am to 2pm
Let your creativity flow in unexpected directions with
master printer Glen Rogers!
Whether you are an artist interested in pursuing another medium (painter, sculptor, etc.) or a beginner ready for a creative experience, this Monotype Workshop is for you!
Monotype printing (or Monoprint) is an easily accessible medium for all levels and encourages playfulness and exploration of ideas. Some refer to this printing process as monoprint - same thing - and its refered to as 'the painterly print.' After demonstrations in a range of techniques, individual attention is given to each artist to pull professional quality prints. We will cover additive techniques (painting on the plate with brushes, rollers, etc), subtractive techniques - applying ink with a roller or brayer and wiping or drawing by removing the ink with a tool, multiple drop color printing, non-toxic Xerox transfer as a way to combine photos with your monoprint. And much more!

I was part of Glen's 5-day monotype workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
With two presses (one large and one small), there was adequate space for the
group of six students in Glen's third-floor studio.
We had fun as a group, getting acquainted with each other, the town, and the dining!
Glen's workshop was a wonderful way to experience the beautiful town of San Miguel de Allende and learn monotype printmaking at the same time!

The atmosphere Glen creates in her workshop is gentle, stress free, supportive and wholly creative. Located in the middle of Centro Historico close to all of the amenities necessary and surrounded by the rich architecture and atmosphere of the old city, the working studio is a warm and welcoming space. After laying out the basic rules, Glen encouraged us to experiment, flow, explore and discover the magic of the form. Each day we then found ourselves lost in the possibilities of glass plates, ink, rollers, paintbrushes, Qtips, paper and a large press that gently yielded incredible prints. The days were interrupted with incredible lunches where all of the workshop participants were able to share their stories before heading off into the afternoon sessions. Throughout all of it, Glen was gracious, open and willing to share experiences as a working artist with all of us.
Whether you are a professional artist or a new comer to the arts experience, I would highly recommend that you take this journey of creativity. It was the highlight of our holiday and an experience we hope to return to again in the near future."
