Workshops

Mixit offers various workshops throughout the year as well as tutorial sessions for one to three people.

Tutorials are handled on a request basis and are designed to meet individual and specific needs.

In the summer months we offer residencies for artists who want a sequence of days to focus on a particular project, or just to experiment.


2022 Workshops

Go with the Flow: Watercolor Monotype
June 13-17, 2022
with Jane Goldman

On The Edge, Jane Goldman

This workshop combines painting with translucent watercolor with the alchemy of working on a press. The result is an exciting fusion of luminosity and complex color layering.

It's an excellent way for watercolor painters to get into printmaking, and for printmakers to work in a spontaneous and fresh medium.

Some experience in watercolor or printmaking is preferred.

Cost: $650
Hours: 10 am to 4 pm

Register: My receipt of your deposit of $300 insures your registration in the workshop.
Send check to Jane Goldman, 32 Clifton St #1, Somerville, Ma 02144; or pay via Venmo to @Jane-goldman-6

To My Surprise, Randy_Garber

Hours: 9:30 am to 5 pm


All Things Akua: Individual Tech Sessions
August 1-6, 2022
with Catherine Kernan

Ink Interaction

Layers of color on a single printing plate make gorgeous monotypes and monoprints. Learn how to modify Akua Intaglio inks for a myriad of effects. Modifying the viscosities of inks leads to results unachievable any other way. Just as peanut butter will not stick to jelly, a loose ink will reject a stiff ink. This is true of traditional oil inks as well as newer, soy oil-based Akua Intaglio inks. Exploiting ink interactions yields multi-color prints from a single plate, and naturally leads to sequences of related images.

We will schedule a full day session to focus on your work, and what you want to accomplish. You will receive the same number of contact hours as in a workshop setting but with undivided attention. The same material will be covered, but in a very directed way, and consultation to plan in advance will be included.

Cost: $650 for a full day on your schedule
