North County Society of Fine Arts
Tuesday, January 24, 2023 - 11:30 - 3:00
This workshop will be based on the demonstration. Each student will work on individual plastic plates using brushes, stencils, or paper cut-out shapes. Using black ink first, then colors, their work will be printed on paper with the use of an etching press that Sfona will bring to class.
A mono print is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art created on a plate, then transferred to paper or another material. Drawing on a plate allows the artist to make different and special effects that cannot be achieved with other media. Sfona will demonstrate the process using inks, a variety of papers
and an etching press. Brushes, Q-tips, cut-out shapes, string and lace are some of the tools she will use.
