Trace monotypes, or transfer drawing is a method of transferring ink with the touch of a tool to the surface of the paper. This way of working is full of expressive possibilities. Subtle, immediate, mark-making is the pleasure of this printing technique. You don’t have to know how to “draw”, just bring a willingness to 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.
