April 20: Experiments with Chance: Hand-Printed Monotypes

9:30 am - 12:30 pm, Prairie Arts Center, 1001 S. Duck St. The relationship between chance and choice is always present in art making: accidents can lead artists in a new direction or an unexpected reaction between materials can lead to working in a completely new way. Beginning with the Surrealists, who were interested in taping into the subconscious – that wild space of the nonsensical and unknown – to artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francis Alÿs, John Cage, and Yoko Ono, chance has been used both as a starting point for works of art and a vital art making process in and of itself. In this workshop, participants will learn how to make hand printed monotypes using methods and techniques that embrace printmaking’s fortuitous disposition. Come ready to experiment and challenge your aesthetic expectations. http://stillwaterarts.okstate.edu/classes/workshops/313-experiments-with-chance-hand-printed-monotypes
