Class Description

NEW This workshop uses a range of new and traditional techniques based in the monotype process. Artists will develop skills while completing a series of print works. Participants will develop an image, transfer the image to paper, and print with primary emphasis placed on the development of each participant’s aesthetic concerns. The class will begin with group demos covering basic oil-based ink monotype techniques then move to more advanced techniques and processes. We will also be working with multiple plates, second pulls (ghosts), stencils, wet and dry paper and a variety of color mixing approaches.
