Collagraph Series @ molaa

29 May

Explore Collagraph with me this month at the Museum of  Latin American Art.  Collagraph utilizes a carboard backing, found objects, thread, modeling paste, natural materials and other collage techniques to create a highly textured surface.  Once the surface has been created, the artist coats it with a layer of medium or varnish, to seal all of the elements together. 

When the coat of varnish dries, the artist applies ink to the plate by rubbing it into the textured plate.  Multiple colors can be used in a collagraph.  All excess ink is removed to show the texture of the plate.   Rage paper is then placed over the inked plate and it is run through our table top press.

When the paper is pulled awy from the plate, the results are beautiful rich, deep and textured images that range from dreamy abstracts to representational work. 

This workshop is perfect for beginning through advanced artists who are interested in found objects, texture & color and who are up to try something new!

This workshop is only offered as a two-class series.
