The Magic of Monotype


Class Material Fee


About the Course

This workshop explores both technical and conceptual approaches to monotype printmaking. Students will be guided through many monotype techniques such as reductive and additive inking, chine colle, multiple drops and layering of imagery. Demonstrations and group discussions will be followed by practice and critique. Individualized and experimental approaches to the medium will be encouraged, as the magic of monotype is an excellent way to achieve highly personalized prints. This will be a non-toxic studio environment open to all levels of artistic and printmaking experience.
