     The excitement of transformation and discovery is inherent in this printmaking media and is sure to inspire and fascinate participants. They will explore both watercolour and oil-based monotypes along with monotype techniques such as chine collé, liftprints and layering. Students are introduced to different papers, materials and the experience of working in a studio atmosphere. They receive individual attention regarding drawing, painting, and composition and learn to print using a manual press. The course will open new possibilities for expression. There is discussion and class critiques throughout. This class is suitable for any level and is a good introduction to the Print Studio and Practice.
     Heather Aston grew up in West Vancouver, BC and graduated with Printmaking Honours from The Vancouver School of Art (now Emily Carr University). She was also a Helen Pitt Scholarship recipient. When studying in Florence Italy, in 1990, she started making monotypes, which has been the main focus of her print work for the last 25 years along with drypoint. Heather teaches printmaking part time in schools, art institutes and private studios. Her work is exhibited regularly in galleries in several Canadian provinces and is represented in numerous collections throughout the world.  To see more of her work, please visit www.heatheraston.com

A palimpsest is something that has changed over time and shows evidence of that change. These three printmakers have reinterpreted this idea to create their own layered artworks, incorporating pattern, text, and colour.
