Combine the directness of painting with the transformational process of printmaking and you get the art of the monotype. Monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints made by painting on a rigid surface and transferring the paint or ink to paper. The medium was prized by Degas and many others for its rich textures and evocative effects. This three-day workshop will introduce a variety of materials, tools, and processes that will enable participants to begin creating their own one-of-a-kind, original prints. Beginners to monotype printmaking are welcome but basic drawing or painting experience will be helpful.
