A print, a painting, a MONOTYPE! The “painterly print” monotype allows you to be free and creative. Printing transparent layers of ink and unlimited techniques to your print will create an exciting, colorful and dynamic original print. Join us for a two-day workshop exploring creative ways to manipulate ink, print and reprint. Allow yourself to be taken on a journey of ink and texture. Monotype has been a technique employed by artist for their personal enjoyment for centuries. It is immediate using the first printed piece and its “ghost” image. Again, the printmaking process produces the delight of the “accidental” meeting the experience of the expected. This class uses a variety of materials. A plexiglass plate will be our base and we will be mixing monotype black as well as using colors with transparent base mediums, different wipes, solvents, stencils, sprays, rags and other tools to create our images. Printed images will be on rag paper.
