I’m spending most of my time working on my Summer Art Market show with monotype artist Taiko Chandler. We’re in Booth 99. Looks like the weather’s finally clearing up; I’ve made quite a bit of new work and Taiko will bring a whole different look with her abstract, very organic work. And filling only half a booth makes my preparation less stressful.

I’ve also got a full load of monotype workshops scheduled. I’ve updated the Workshops page with full details, but here’s a quick summary:

The last free Denver Public Library workshop is at Athmar Park branch on June 17. Full details here. There will be a full Fall schedule, including a couple of new branches, announced here in late summer.

At the League, my workshops vary in length and detail, and come at many price levels. All of them stress creative process and good conversation. It’s a great place to meet new friends and jump start your creativity!

Tuesday, June 16, 4-7 PM. Moxie U: Monotype Graphics This is a new program at the Art Students League that features brief, user friendly sessions at a very low price ($27/33. member/non-member). A good way to dip your toe. Link: http://asld.modvantage.com/Course/CourseDetail/7974/moxie-u-monotype-graphics-good-enough-for-happy-hour

Tuesdays, June 23-August 11, 6:00-9:30 PM: Monotypes for All Ability Levels This is my summer evening full, 8-week workshop. It starts with the very basics of print room procedure and goes gradually into more advanced techniques. ($252/308.)(http://asld.modvantage.com/Course/CourseDetail/2544/monotypes-for-all-ability-levels

Saturday, August 8, 9-4:30 Monotype Sampler This is a moderately detailed full-day workshop that starts with the basic print room procedure and black and white printing in the morning, and advances to color in the afternoon. Moderately priced, too ( $67.50/82.50). http://asld.modvantage.com/Course/CourseDetail/7973/monotype-sampler

You can register on line by following the links, or come down to the Summer Art Market and see the show, and register there. I’ll be there (in Booth 99), so I can answer any questions for you.

The Summer Art Market itself is June 13-14 west of the school at 2nd and Grant Street (we’ll be near the urban gardens somewhere between 2nd and 3rd on Grant). It features over 200 artists over 4-5 blocks, but is less crowded and more focused on art than most street fairs. I’ll be doing a demo there on Saturday at 1 PM, and the fair is open 10-6 PM. Sunday hours are 10-5.
