Monoprint | Collage | Painting
with Jane Davies

Discover a whole new world of artistic possibility when you combine collage and paint with monoprinting techniques. First, we will layer colors, patterns, and textures with the gel plate (synthetic gelatin printing plate, available from various manufacturers) creating gorgeously printed collage papers. Then we combine them with painting, drawing, and layering to build images directly on a heavy paper substrate. We will be working in series, which allows fluidity of process, focus, and momentum in your work. Let the boundaries between painting, monoprinting, and collage disappear as you explore this exciting means of creative expression.

Students should know or learn about the basics of gel plate printing prior to workshop. I will not be demonstrating the basics; you can find loads of tutorials online at the GelliArts website and blog, or download my Monoprint Collage class here: https://janedaviesstudios.com/workshops/online-workshops/

Payment Options: Students may pay in full or choose the payment-plan option during registration. The payment plan requires a non-refundable $125 deposit with the balance due 30 days before the first day of the workshop.

Class meets 10 – 5 on the first day, 9 – 4 on subsequent days with a one hour lunch.

Jane Davies

Jane Davies is a full time artist working in collage, painting, and encaustic. She offers workshops at her studio and nationwide, focusing on helping people to find a personal and playful approach to art.

Beginning as a potter in the early nineties, selling her colorful hand-painted ceramics at craft shows, Davies gradually transitioned into freelance art, designing tableware, fabric, paper goods, stationery, and other products, using painting and collage as her medium. For the past several years, Davies has put most of her efforts towards teaching, writing, and making art.

I believe that making art is a journey with very few hand-holds and only a general road map. Each participant has to find his or her own way, while at the same time remain open to learning from others.While I may teach a multitude of techniques, my focus is on the back-and-forth play of spontaneity and intention that characterizes the creative process. I try to pave the way into that precarious I-don’t-know-what-to-do-next zone, where you are challenged to forge a personal path, with guidance, to discover the satisfaction of making art that is truly your own. Cultivating a degree of comfort, or at least willingness, with that awkward territory of not-knowing, is one of the keys to finding your creative edge.
