HSC Intensive: Drawing with Monoprinting
18 Mar 2018 - 18 Mar 2018
Work with Michelle Cawthorn in a workshop designed to introduce students to a range of monoprinting methods that can extend the creative possibilities of their current visual research.
Monotype printing is considered the most painterly and expressive form of printmaking because of its versatility. Prints are made by drawing or painting directly onto a smooth, non-absorbent surface. A unique print, or monotype, is produced when paper is placed over the plate and an image is released during pressing.
In this workshop, students will learn how to make monotypes (monoprints) using a range of monoprinting techniques such as additive and reductive, direct offset, collage and stencil methods. Students will be encouraged to use images or ideas contained in their VAPD’s as source material, so it is important that they bring it with them on the day.
The tutor, Michelle Cawthorn, is a UNSW Art & Design graduate with degrees in Fine Arts and Art Education. She is a practising artist and art educator who specialises in drawing, mixed media and sculpture. She has been a finalist in a number of significant national and international awards including the prestigious Sir John Sulman Prize (2017) at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize (2015) and the Hazelhurst Art on Paper Award (2013, 2015 and 2017) for which she received the Friends of Hazelhurst Local Artist Award in 2013 and again in 2017.
In 2012, she was the recipient of an Australian Post Graduate Award to undertake research in Sculpture, Performance and Installation and in 2016 was the recipient of an Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship for study towards her PhD.
