The Painterly Print

Monotype printing is ideal for the painter who would like to produce a body of work on paper. Monoprinting also opens up the contemporary possibility of stepping away from formal easel painting. This workshop will demonstrate the basic techniques to make a successful monotype print. Some of these techniques include the process of painting on a surface suitable for monoprinting, operating a printing press, and preparing paper for printing. Examples of artists’ work that employs monoprinting will be introduced. Students should come to class with an experimental outlook. All levels of painting experience are welcome from the beginner to advanced painter.
