Quenching my thirst with Susan Rostow’s firehose of information on Dimensional Drypoint Monoprints with Akua Inks

Its been a long time since I did any print making. A very long time. 72 hours into a weeklong workshop and I’m struggling to get my footing in the print studio. I want an etching press cheat sheet. And a vocabulary list.

I miss the feeling of competence that accompanies my painting. Its good for me, growth. Two days to go but I suspect I won’t come home with brilliant prints, but I’ll have some terrific ideas to explore more fully. Here’s some of what I’ve done: monoprints with drypoint, grits, etc and monotypes – with a ghost print.

    Was that a workshop exclusively for women? Or why are there no men?

      Not exclusively for women but no men in this particular class – other workshops do have male students but they are by far the minority. And yet about half the instructors are male. Don’t know why but that is the usual for art workshops/classes that I attend.
