Full course description

Monoprinting Workshop

Saturdays, 10/15 and 10/22/2022, 10:00am-1:00pm

Location: Evans Campus, Room TBD

Instructor: Alexandra Bailliere

Monoprinting is a fun printing process in which inks are directly applied to or wiped away from a surface for printing. This process creates a unique printed painting. In this 2-day workshop, you will learn cool monoprinting techniques you can easily do at home without access to a press. Over the course of three morning sessions, we will cover how to make a print, collographs, chine collé, rainbow rolls and watercolor monotypes. Monoprinting allows for a very spontaneous and immediate way of executing your visual ideas!
Materials list: $30 for materials is included in the workshop price. This includes all inks, papers and a plexi sheet which the artists can take home along with their prints

Instructor Bio: I am a Sausalito, California-based visual artist. Although I work across media boundaries, lately I have been making representational and figurative oil paintings. I am constantly awestruck by the beauty and color around me, whether a reflection in a mirror or a verdant secret garden. My influences are the visual elements of my surroundings. I try to bring the beauty I see in the mundane into my studio where I communicate my interpretation through my work.

I have been painting and drawing since a very young age, starting at the age of 10 with weekend figure drawing classes at the Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore, where I grew up. I continued with art through high school, during which time I was fortunate enough to spend a summer semester at the Cleveland Institute of Art college-program in Lacoste, France. I later continued with my art studies while an undergraduate at Duke University. I spent my junior year of college on a Duke-Cornell program in Paris where I studied art history at the Université de Paris-I and painting at the Académie Port-Royal. I later completed my MFA at Mills College in Oakland, California, where I was also awarded a teaching assistantship in my second year. I now teach visual art in continuing education at College of Marin, City Extension SF and with Ruth's Table, a non-profit intergenerational art space in San Francisco. 
My work has been presented at Root Division, the Worth Ryder Gallery at UC Berkeley, the Mills College Art Museum, the Palo Alto Art Center, the Berkeley Art Center and the Sanchez Art Center.
