Bursting Out! Monoprinting as a Spiritual Practice
July 16 – 20, 2018
Naramata Centre, Naramata, BC
Led by Julie Elliot
Monoprinting falls somewhere between painting and printmaking. The beauty of this process is an inherent “brand-new something” in every moment. It’s a process that encourages letting go and letting be. In that way, it helps us let go of our need for control – allowing something new to emerge – something better than we could have imagined in the first place. It’s all about being present to what is and working with that.
We’ll learn new techniques each day and many options will be offered so you can “burst out and see” your own unique creations. Be delighted as you discover the distinctive colours, textures, shapes, and lines that show up in monoprints. We’ll be inspired by the beauty of Naramata Centre as we make use of botanicals (leaves, weeds, grasses, and flowers) along with other found objects.
Absolute beginners are welcome, as well as more experienced artists. Everyone will work at their own pace and depth.
