Creating Monotypes: January 22 - 24, 2016

Explore Monotypes As A Way To Extend Your Painting Practice

Discover the versatile medium of monotype printmaking! Creating monotypes is a great introduction to printmaking for painters. Known as the “painterly print”, this medium is a unique hybrid that combines qualities of both painting and printmaking.

The monotype process involves painting directly on a surface like a plexiglass plate and transferring the painted image to paper by applying pressure, usually with a printing press. Because only a single image is produced from the plate, prints made this way are called ‘mono – types’.

Using high quality water-soluable inks we’ll work to achieve rich value and color while using both additive and subtractive techniques. All levels.

Price: $355. Enrollment is limited to 8.

The price of the workshop includes 13 hours of instruction as well as paper and ink for six prints. The format includes demos, short exercises, gentle group critiques, and, with a very limited enrollment, plenty of personal attention from the instructor. Over the course of the weekend, participants will develop a clearer understanding of how to translate their own expressive visual language within the context of painting into painterly prints.
