Monotype 1

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. This versatile process is introduced through a series of demonstrations, lectures, guest artists and studio practice. Along with work on specific projects, participation in critiques, attending field trips, and in-studio experimental work, students are expected to use the techniques covered to develop series of prints as a body of work. Students may continue their investigations by taking a second course, PRINT 324 Monotype 2.
