Discover creativity in yourself! Monotype
Instructor: Marju Bormeister

Monotype is a painting printed on paper or textile. It is the only print of a picture painted on the plate. Usually only a single good print is obtained, but depending on the means it is also possible to obtain more. If you have a glass plate for printing, you can put a suitable picture under it, and then paint through the glass. We also experiment with printing colour as graphic art technique.

Stamp graphics
instructor Marje Üksine

In two days the participants can make one or several graphic prints, as they want. For introduction we study relevant works of maestro Evald Okas. In our work, we use simple and more handy techniques of classical stamp graphics. On the first day a participant shall prepare one or several print plates. On the second day printing will take place, using special intaglio colours. The result may resemble a small aquarelle. Several (also multi-colour) prints can be made from one plate. At the end you will sign your picture and take it home. A graphic print is a suitable and valuable present!
