Monotype Explorations

Monoprinting is an exciting form of printmaking that favors organic, gestural, textural, and ephemeral marks and imagery. This process is an incredibly immediate, intuitive, and playful way of exploring printmaking. It is well suited to people new to printmaking and artists who typically work with paint, mixed media, or drawing.

In this 6 week workshop, students will be introduced to fundamental water and oil-based monotype techniques. Students will learn a variety of methods to create layers of shapes, colors, and textures such as chine colle, pochoir, and offset stencils. By tapping into intuitive and experimental making, students will work with a variety of colors and textures to make painterly and expressive prints.
