PRINT-224

Monotype is an exciting print technique which merges drawing, painting and printmaking to create rich and expressive imagery. By working with either oil or water-based inks on a slick surface, images are transferred to paper under pressure in singular or multiple drops producing unique results unattainable in other processes. As a special component of the workshop format, several artists work with the students in the studio while sharing their individual monotype techniques. Along with work on specific projects, participation in critiques, attending field trips, and doing in-studio experimental work, students are expected to use the techniques covered to develop a series of prints as a part of a body of work. May be repeated for additional credit.
