Studio Incamminati alumnus Barbara Zanelli will lead this one day workshop on the press-free process of capturing the beauty of the horse using the technique of trace monotype. Trace monotype (sometimes known as transfer drawing) is the intersection of drawing, painting and printmaking. It employs the directness of drawing and painting with the process and materials of printmaking. Popularized in the late 20th century by artists such as Paul Klee and Paul Gauguin, trace monotype unifies the rich blackness of ink and the hand-drawn expressiveness of the artist’s mark. The immediacy of the process allows for multiple prints to be made relatively quickly, permitting a fresh exploration of contour, line, mark, and gesture perfectly suited for drawing the horse, especially in motion.

I will cover basic horse anatomy, helping you to capture the grace, essence and dynamism of the horse. Perfect for beginners and skilled draftsmen alike, trace monotype is both very forgiving and very fun!
