About

The Museum School at the Cape Cod Museum of Art presents:

Monotype/New Horizons 3-Day Workshop with Joyce Gardner Zavorskas

Friday, October 27 - Sunday, October 29 from 10-3 pm.

Member $265 / Non-Member $280 cost includes $40 materials fee.

Explore experimental and contemporary techniques using viscosity layering of oil base inks and roller transfer imagery. Spontaneous painting and drawing approaches are applied to smooth plates using modified inks. Viscous (thicker) ink is repelled by oily (buttery soft) ink and jumps onto the roller or brayer. This magical image can then be transferred from the roller to other plates and printed or rolled onto a previous print or drawing. The possibilities are endless and provocative. Glistening layers of radient ink create truly unique images with mystery, memory, and intrigue. Chine colle and trace monotype will be explored. 

Large rollers are available but bring your own if you have them. Bring resource images or sketches to class. Beginner to advanced students are welcomed.

Material list

  • Bring new smooth Plexiglas plates if you want to make a specific size of monotypes. Joyce will have extra Plexiglas plates available to use, but it is good to have several of your own, cut to the same size you want to overprint!
  • 2-3 soft Speedball soft rubber brayers,1.5” is the best size
  • Assorted bristle brushes, 1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large, for painterly marks
  • 2 Palette knives to mix ink colors, 3-4” blade
  • 2B pencil
  • Black china marker
  • One roll of paper towels or clean soft rags
  • Newsprint pad 18x24” to bring home prints each day
  • Extra printmaking paper such as white BFK Rives 250 grams size 22x30” if you have any
  • Study sketches and photos for reference
  • Small sketchbook to take notes and sketch ideas and memories
  • Optional: Charbonnell oil base etching inks in 60ml tubes for making luminous layered monotypes. Joyce uses these inks mixed with Gamblin White to make all her painterly monotypes. They are highly pigmented and stay moist in the tubes for years. Six basic colors: Primrose Yellow, Ruby Red, Orient Blue, Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber, and Cerulean Blue.
