Monotype in Mazatlán Print Workshop
The perfect Art Vacation!
Enjoy 5 days of creativity with a backdrop of Mazatlan's beautiful Historic District — add the beach, sailing, yoga, spa, massage, great seafood and you have the Perfect Art Vacation!
Monotype is an easily accessible medium for all levels, beginner to advanced, and encourages playfulness and exploration of ideas. After demonstrations in a range of techniques, individual attention is given to each artist to pull professional quality prints.
This workshop is for you if you are...
* A printmaker who wants to get away and create a new body of work in a stimulating environment
* An artist from another discipline( painter, sculptor) who wants to work with a master printer and develop a new body of work outside of their usual realm
* Someone looking for an artful adventure where you can experience Mexico and create art amongst history and beauty.

What is a monotype? Monotype (or monoprint) - often called the "painterly print" - is a one-of-a-kind print made by painting on an acrylic plate. The plate is then run thru an etching press with a damp sheet of paper, transferring the image to paper. Monotype has a spontaneity and freedom that other print processes, such as lithography or etching, do not. You can work in any style - from detailed, traditional styles to looser abstractions, incorporating photography, collage, text, to fine line-work.
The studio is located at Baltasar Izaguirre Rojo #23 in the heart of Centro Historico. Prints will be produced with oil based inks using a Griffin III, etching press, 37" x 52" press bed. All materials will be provided except paper. Paper can be purchased in the workshop at cost or if you prefer, you can bring your own printmaking paper such as Rives BFK. Optional items to bring: apron, brushes, sketchbook, ideas, source material.
