Class Details

Spontaneous and delightfully unpredictable, the monotype is a style of printmaking that creates exactly one image by applying ink onto a flat surface, and transferring it to paper using pressure – by hand or a through a printing press. It is neither drawing nor painting, it is both! In this class students will use the monotype to heighten their sensitivity to line, colour, tone, texture, transparency, pressure, ink viscosity, and overall composition. They will also explore techniques like tracing, stencilling, chine-collĂ©, reductive + additive mark making, and hand rubbing, while acquainting themselves with the history of the medium — its practitioners, and its scope. No prior experience in drawing or painting required, though it is quite welcome.
