Monotype Printmaking Class
Instructor: Katherine Venturelli
Saturday, March 16, 11:00am - 3:00pm
Materials Fee: $10, does not include paper
Come and playfully learn the basics of a low tech and innovative painterly printmaking process called monotype. Monotypes are unique prints made by the direct transfer of an image. This easily accessible medium allows both novices and experienced artists of all ages to create finished images in relatively few steps.
In this hands-on experience, workshop participants will develop an understanding of fundamental printmaking terms, materials, and inking techniques using oil-based inks with non-toxic clean-up. We will focus on both spontaneous and methodical approaches to the medium. Demonstrations will include the use of the etching press, printing by hand, and experimentation with textures and collage materials. No experience needed!
