2017 Maureen Sheldon: Monoprint and Matisse Meet in Escalante – the En Plein Air Printmaking Experience

September 26, 2017 - September 27, 2017


Two Day Workshop – Tuesday, Sept. 26 and Wednesday, September 27 – 9 AM to 5 PM each day

Cost: $200 + $140 for supplies / Workshop is limited to 10 participants – must have 2 registered for it to be held.  / Beginner and Intermediate Level / Additional questions about this workshop may be directed to Maureen: agentquinze@gmail.com.


In this 2 day workshop Maureen will share a unique insight into the world of printing in our modern times.  She will provide an overview of the possibilities related to Print in 2017 and then will take the class into the world of the Hand Produced Print.  While the majority of the workshop will focus on the Monoprinting style with use of cut-outs, masks, and blockers, Relief printmaking will be mixed in such that two styles of printmaking are covered overall.

Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting.  The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing media, as such most fit for the Escalante Canyons En Plein Air event.
Matisse is referenced in the course name as he embraced all the tools in the printmakers tool-kit.  We can take inspiration from some of his work.
Lastly, as of July 2017 Maureen will complete a workshop with Danish Master Printmaker Henrik Bøegh in Capilieria, Spain.  Non-toxic printing methods are the focus  and all materials used in Utah will be NON- TOXIC, water based ink.
