Color Viscosity* Monoprinting: In this two day workshop students will create beautiful

one of a kind prints. Following in the tradition of Krishna Reddy they will share a relief pallet

where the ink has been mixed to three different consistencies aka viscosities. Starting with

blank plastic plates participants will isolate areas by use of stencils, brayers, brush strokes or

solvents affects. This colorful approach will open the door to spontaneous techniques, drawing

with a brayer and ghost impressions. The production is fast and many original works will be

achieved by each participant. *Viscosity is a measure of a fluid's resistance to flow.
