Using no chemical solvents and Charbonnel water-miscible oil inks, students will explore the possibilities of creating one-of-a-kind prints using either a pre-existing substrate (such as an etching or collagraph plate) making a monoprint or one-off monotypes where images are created directly on a sheet of plexiglass. By employing templates, stencils, textured fabrics in the printing process, students can produce multilayered images. This class is suitable for novice as well as experienced printmakers. Manhattan Graphics will supply the inks and some plexiglass plates. Supply list will be provided upon registration.
