Techniques in Monoprinting
Arts & DIYNote: This is a multi-session event series. By purchasing the event package, you acknowledge that you can attend all event dates included below.
Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that favors organic, gestural, textural, and ephemeral marks and imagery. This process is incredibly immediate, playful, and a multi-faceted type of printmaking, and therefore well suited to first-time printers and artists who typically work with paint, mixed media, and sculpture. These prints usually begin from a sheet of plexiglass as the foundation. Through working additively and reductively with ink, crayons, water or solvents, and stencils, students can capture a large range of aesthetics from subtle tonality to gritty textures to minimal formal forms.
Throughout the class, students will develop new ways to build images while learning about the properties of ink, paper, pressure, and how they interact to create a broad range of aesthetic possibilities. Printing techniques will include collage, multiple plate printing, trace, stencil, ghost, additive, and reductive. Students will make many prints to learn and test these processes before moving on to a project that combines various methods and showcases a personal style or vision.
This class meets for 4 weeks on Wednesdays from 1:00-5:00 PM, starting 2/19/2020 through 3/11/2020.
