Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only. Artists ranging from Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ross Moffett, and more recently Joan Snyder and Michael Mazur have used the monotype medium to express a spontaneous and evocative range of drawing, painting and printmaking combinations.

Students will make drawn and painted images on acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, Oil Bars, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, results in a unique impression that is intimately bonded with the fibers of the paper. Overprinting and contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises.  Glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Beginner to advanced students are welcome. Clean-up will be with baby oil or Gamsol.

The recipient of numerous awards, Joyce Zavorskas has exhibited widely, including London, Paris, New York and California. Her monotypes, oils and encaustics are represented locally by Left Bank Gallery and Miller White Fine Arts. Zavorskas has taught printmaking for 38 years at local colleges, museums and art centers, including PAAM, Castle Hill, Touchstone, Simmons College, Bridgewater State University and Cape Cod Community College. She holds three university degrees, including an MFA in Painting/Printmaking from MassArt, during which she studied with Michael Mazur, Peik Larsen, and Joel Janowitz. She has served on the executive boards of the Boston Printmakers, Monotype Guild of New England, Printmakers of Cape Cod and the Creative Art Center. www.joycezavorskas.com
