February 2 | Intro to Monotype Printing (4 Weeks)
Monotyping is printmaking in a very pure form: the transfer of ink to a singular image that cannot be duplicated. Monotypes are unique, precious, “one-of-one” and the process of creating them is ripe for experimentation, play, and working quickly through ideas and iterations.
In this 4-week class, students will learn techniques in both oil-based and water-based inks that resemble everything from delicate watercolor to chunky fingerpaint and fine ballpoint pen. Participants will also learn to work with “ghost” prints and templates to create variable editions, as well as unique and collaborative prints as a class.
Come surprise yourself and each other with the possibilities of this generous and flexible medium!
