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.
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.
Hours: 10 am to 4 pm

This intensive five-day workshop is designed to give you an introduction to the practice of printmaking.
We will cover three foundational processes (monotype, intaglio, and relief), discovering the unique visual effects and qualities each of them provides. Through demonstrations and personal instruction, you will learn a range of techniques and approaches to making visual work, all with newer less-toxic materials.
Print Bootcamp emphasizes exploration, experimentation, and play. You will make a series of original prints and leave this workshop with a newfound love and admiration for prints, presses, and the community around them. The class is open to beginning and advanced students.
Cost: $650 + $25 materials fee
Joel Janowitz is offering a 4-day intensive oil-based monotype workshop at Mixit Print Studio. He will introduce a variety of monotype techniques including trace monotype, additive and subtractive inking, stencils, and multiple press runs. The workshop will also explore viscosity printing – the surprising ways printing inks of different viscosities (stickiness) interact with each other to build richly complex images.
Deposit should be made out to Joel Janowitz and sent directly to him after confirmation.
Cost: $650 includes most studio and materials fees. $200 deposit.
Hours: 9:30 am to 5 pm
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
