Printmaking: Discovering Monotypes & Monoprints, Begins Wednesday Feb 14
This class welcomes all levels of skill in printmaking, from novice to advanced. We will use additive, subtractive and viscosity techniques, adding layers of interest and intrigue to your print as well as your knowledge. The monotype experience allows for a free and experimental way to practice the transfer of ink onto paper.
A monotype is one printed image, which does not have any form of matrix. On the other hand, a monoprint has some form of basic matrix. The process of creating a monoprint or a monotype is the same, but when doing monotypes, the artist works on a clean and unetched plate; with monoprints, however, there is always a pattern or part of an image which is constantly repeated in each print. Artists often use etched plates or some kind of pattern such as lace, leaves, fabric or even rubber gaskets, to add texture. In this case, having a repeated pattern, we have a monoprint.
