Monoprinting Workshop with Lynn Scott-Cumming
9 May @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm| See below for prices
Join Umbrella and our latest exhibiting artist Lynn Scott-Cumming 10:30am-1:30pm Sunday 9 May 2021 to create a series of unique-state text-based monoprints. Lynn will draw on her wealth of experience as an artist and writer to guide participants in both areas of her expertise. Participants will develop a short poem or prose to overlay onto shapes and images developed as monoprints. A variety of colours and papers will be available, reflecting the vibrancy and diversity of Lynn’s exhibition Moon Phase: Chasing Transcendence (on display 16 April – 23 May). Participants will also be encouraged to experiment with a variety of techniques and media.
