Creative Artists that love color and enjoy painting join me to experience this exciting mono-print workshop held monthly here at Colorest.

“Mono-Type is a form of printmaking that has images that can only be made once, unlike most fine art printmaking which allows for multiple originals.”

Come explore, create be spontaneous while having fun with this unique process. You choose your style contemporary, impressionistic, abstract, fauvist or traditional. I will teach you so many exciting techniques you will fall in love with them all. Hands on lessons in diverse styles and execution so you can develop your own freedom of expression. We will fine tune Color Theory and Composition so your individual mark as an artist develops a unique style in this new, fun and enriching medium. Our five hour monthly workshops are held on Sundays from 11:00-4:00pm bring your lunch and all supplies are included (printing Inks, printing plates and brayers) just bring some watercolor paper and I will send an email to you upon registration.

Join me expressing yourself freely while learning how to explore a new fine art medium: Printmaking. All painters welcome whether you enjoy watercolor, pastels, oils or acrylic this fun and rewarding monthly workshop is for you…!!!

Sunday, March 10, 2024. 9:30am - 12:00pm

Instructor: Jenny Santa Maria

There is a $10 materials fee paid day of class to instructor, please cash only

 Come celebrate the spring at Colorest with this unique opportunity to learn an ancient art and folk tradition. Pysanky, also known as Ukrainian eggs, are created using a process similar to batik. Patterns are drawn on the egg with hot beeswax, which then protects the covered areas from the dye that is applied. By repeating this process with different colors of dye, a multi-colored pattern is built up. Finally, the wax is removed to reveal the colors that were covered up at each stage. A great deal of patience and concentration is required to complete a single egg, but it is very rewarding to reveal your hard work when the wax is taken off. All skill levels and ages can create an original pysanka.  

This workshop will cover the history and traditions surrounding pysanky, demonstration, and an independent practice session. The instructor will provide a variety of organic eggs, many traditional and non- traditional colored dyes, and all supplies. This meditative and communal experience is unlike any other art process and for many this workshop marks the beginning of a spring time family tradition that can be passed on and enjoyed for years to come.

In-person attendance will be extremely limited. 

Please bring a container or old egg carton. ages 13+

BIO- The instructor, Jenny Santa Maria, has created many beautiful eggs that have been featured in numerous periodicals including the Wall St. Journal. She considers her work batik eggs because they have a more modern aesthetic and stretch the boundaries of the traditional process. For some eggs, a design is worked and reworked dozens of times until the design can be retired. From textiles to wrapping paper, many references have contributed to her body of work. She has been teaching pysanky for several years in various settings like libraries, artist retreats and museums but always appreciates intimate settings where families and friends can gather. Many years ago it all started with private lessons in her living room and she tries to bring that same special quality to each and every workshop. There is no greater joy than keeping this soulful process alive and bringing families together through the arts.
