Monoprinting is a playful, exploratory process requiring neither a press nor a background in art.
On a plate of gel or plexiglass, images are made with paint, rollers, sponges, netting, leaves or anything else which might create an interesting pattern. The focus is not upon the finished work but upon the experience of discovery and making art.
In the workshop, after two or three hours, the group gathers to discuss what has been created. The purpose of the discussion is to help each person recognize the beauty in their work. Or, in the words of Ann O’Hanlon, our purpose is “to look upon a seemingly random work of our own with interest” and with “the same fulfillment… experienced on an unknown wilderness trail.”

About Candis Cousins
Candis Cousins first came to the Center in 1972. Ann O’Hanlon was alive and at that time the Center was called ‘Sight and Insight.’ On Candis’ first day, Ann’s suggestion for working was this: “Every decision you make, try to make the wrong decision.”
In 2002, Candis returned to OHCA to join the mono printing group led by Cayen Robertson and Karen Cox. In her own work, Candis tries to keep moving forward without a plan, just to see what comes.
