A monoprint is an individual, one-of-a-kind print that can be made from traditional plates such as metal, wood, cardboard, plexiglass or other nontraditional surfaces that are found or manipulated. This course will teach you the basics in mixing inks, hand wiping and rolling techniques and overprinting in multiple colors and plates. The making and printing of carborundum, plates, gum transfers and chine collé will also be taught. Students will develop an image through a related series of unique prints. Open to all levels, from beginners to those who wish to investigate new techniques. Level: all levels (beginner to advanced).
Any materials necessary for the first class meeting will be communicated to enrolled students by the instructor in advance. Otherwise, materials and supplies will be covered in the first class meeting.
