    The workshop will intail sketching and painting directly onto small plastic plates with water-soluble crayons and water soluble inks.  We will also use found natural objects, such as leaves, to transfer images with brayers (rollers) onto our prints. Finally, we will use pencils and other implements to transfer ink from a plate onto our prints (trace monotyping).

    The workshop will be followed at 6:00 pm by Ms. Kelly's presentation of the work she produced during her residency at 6:00 pm.
