Monotype, the painterly technique, offers great flexibility in mark making and color layering, and is one of the most direct ways of making a print.

What you put on your plate is what you get when the ink is offset to paper but magic happens as layers combine and inks offer their characteristic textures and qualities. Using flexible plastic printing plates (petg), sized up to 18″ x 24″ and water-soluble Akua inks, we’ll cover the elements of monotype printmaking. Demonstrations using a variety of rollers, tools and stencils will help you explore ways of layering and manipulating these inks to create painterly monotypes on paper. Individual and group critique/discussions are included along with studio time.

Printmakers of all levels, including beginners, are welcome.

Materials fee includes plate, inks and a limited quantity of paper.
