Akua Monoprints
Instructor Kelly Sullivan

Saturday January 19, 2019
10 AM to 2 PM
JCBA's Book & Paper Studio at Historic Building T6
Class limit: 12

In the Hawaiian language, Akua (pronounced ah-koo-ah) means "honor the land.” Akua inks are professional quality water-based inks created by printmakers Susan Rostow & William Jung. Rostow & Jung were motivated to create safe, fume-free inks when they decided to bring a baby into their marriage and their New York city live-in studio.

In this mixed media mono printing workshop, we’ll work hands-on in various techniques with Akua inks and gel plate. While working and playing in the creative process, participants will learn how to mix color, judge the correct consistency of the inks to be used, roll out colors on a sheet of plastic, cut out stencils, and use different materials to express mark-making ideas.
