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.

2024 Workshops


4-Day Monotype Workshop: Viscosity+
February 9-12, 2024
with Joel Janowitz

Joel Janowitz, Blue Marking Blurred Vision, 2023

Joel Janowitz is offering a 4-day intensive oil-based monotype workshop for working artists and serious students. It is an opportunity to take a deep dive into monotypes – often called 'the painterly print. Participants will have the opportunity to work on their own projects while exploring a variety of monotype techniques including trace, additive and subtractive inking, stencils, and multiple press runs. The workshop will also explore VISCOSITY printing and the surprising ways inks of different viscosities (stickiness) interact with each other to build lively and richly complex prints.

Cost: $675 includes basic materials such as inks, newsprint, a starting supply of paper and access to brayers and rollers. 
Hours: 9:30 am to 5 pm

For additional information and to register please contact Joel directly: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Once he has confirmed your place in the workshop please send a deposit of $300 made out to him:

All Things Akua: Individual Tech Sessions
July 29-August 2, 2024
with Catherine Kernan

Ink Interaction

Working one-on-one, attention is focused on exactly what you want to learn for your particular project and way of working. The sessions include lots of printing, critique, and technical information all of which feed directly into aesthetic sensibilities. Equivalent in contact hours to a five-day workshop, but in a much more concentrated way, this way of working has proven highly satisfactory and very inspiring.

Cost: $650 for a full day as scheduled directly with Catherine or on other days all year.
