Do you love the direct fluidity of drawing?  This very simple method of transferring ink through the touch of a tool to the surface of the paper is full of expressive possibilities. Subtle, immediate, mark-making is the pleasure of this printing technique. Demonstrations will highlight how to make a home registration system and how to add variation to the color of the line, while creating linear prints without a press. You don’t have to know how to “draw” to make these monotypes — just bring your curiosity and see what a line feels like. 

Students will explore several simple printing techniques, ways of printing at home without a press, and receive guided instruction through demonstrations, drawing prompts, and individual attention.

We will be printing with Akua Intaglio Inks (soap and water clean up) and learning how to modify inks to get a full range to the quality of the line, from crisp to softly fluid. All levels of printing experience are welcome
