Avila is an art teacher at the Altus High School. His workshop on Monotype Printmaking is only the second time he has offered it with the Institute. For those of us who do not know what monotype printmaking here is a brief description. Monotype printmaking consists of inking a Plexiglas plate, creating an image by removing the ink and then transferring the image to paper. Sounds like fun and a very creative way to make art. The workshop is Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday Dec. 12, 13, and 15 from 6 to 9 p.m.
All of the art workshops are partially funded by the Oklahoma Arts Council. For more information on either of the workshops or to reserve a seat, call the library at 477-2890.
