Event Navigation

Art at Kings Oaks presents a one-day monotype workshop with Lancaster-based artist John David Wissler, featured in the fall exhibition at Kings Oaks. Monotypes by John David Wissler shown above.

10am – 5pm Saturday, October 20, 2018
Kings Oaks, 756 Worthington Mill Road, Newtown, PA 18940

We will enjoy the history and beauty of the setting at Kings Oaks as we explore the painterly method of hand-pressed monotypes. Using simple materials and tools, we will join the likes of Degas, Prendergast, and Nelligan, interpreting what we see, what we observe, and creating images.

Beginning with an introduction to terms, materials, and methods, we will quickly move to observation, invention, and creating. This workshop is open to all levels of experience. All questions welcome! I hope you will join us as we enter one of the most painterly of printmaking processes.

Workshop cost: $90 General / $70 Students
