Join us for a MONOTHON* (*monotype marathon) at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) on November 9th and 10th, 2013
Monotype is a painterly approach to printmaking, where unique impressions are created by applying ink to a smooth plate and transferring that ink from the plate to dampened printmaking paper through an etching press. Experienced printers and
enthusiastic artists are welcome.

John Greco, printmaker, master printer, and owner of
Josephine Press, will introduce monotype and work with
participants one-on-one during Saturday’s session.
Taylor, studio manager, gallery director and instructor at
Josephine Press, will lead Sunday’s session.

The first LAPS Monothon event was held at the CSUN print shop October 19th and 20th was a good time for all to make prints in the spacious and well organized CSUN studio. Michelle Rozic had the print shop in great shape and with plenty of supplies for the artists, students and volunteers attending that made the day fly by with activity.

Artists Friday morning were Mary Tarango, Poli Marichal, Kay Brown and Carolyn Liesy. The Saturday sessions were with Gemini GEL master printer and CSUN alum, Xavier Fumat. Artists included LAPS honorary member Tom Fricano who stopped by to share in the fun.

Many thanks to Michelle Rozic for the hard work pulling off this event. And thanks to the CSUN student volunteers, Marty Cha and Katrina Castillo on Friday and on Saturday, Zeina Baltagi, Thanya Jule Moran, Miles Lewis and Leslie Kim.  Thanks to LAPS Volunteers Diane McLeod, Judy Dekel, Gabriella Valdevia, Rachelle Mark and Mary Sherwood. Thanks to master printer Xavier Fumat for making it a special event. And a big thank you to Mary Peterson of LAPS for her generous donation of printmaking supplies for the event.
