Monoprints are one-of-a-kind prints that are the most flexible and least intimidating of all the printmaking processes. Discover how you can create unique, painterly images in a matter of hours using many of the same techniques of watercolor and oil painting. To create an image, artist Philip Hartigan will show participants how to paint with brushes, rollers, drawing tools and more onto a hard, non-absorbent surface. When ready, dampened paper is registered onto the hard painted surface and run through a hand-cranked printing press. After your print has been run through once, layers may be added to your piece using stencils, chine colle (a collage technique) and overprinting processes to create exciting effects. Whether you are an experienced artist looking to experiment with new techniques, or an absolute beginner, this course will help you develop at your own pace. A monoprint demonstration and explanation of techniques will begin the course and individual guidance will be provided thereafter to each participant.
All supplies and media will be provided by the instructor as a part of the workshop materials fee.
All skill levels are welcome.
