One of a Kind: Monotypes (Summer 2014)

Fine Arts

In this fun, hands‐on workshop, students will learn how to combine printmaking with the spontaneity of collage, painting, and drawing to create inventive and surprising imagery with monotypes.

Students will create images on Plexiglas using ink, stencils, and a variety of other readily available tools. Using printmaking techniques, students will transfer their images to paper to create unique, one‐of‐a‐kind works of art. They will also explore such techniques as direct‐trace monotypes, direct‐painting monotypes, subtractive methods, and collage monotypes as the working day progresses.

Students will look at examples of artists monotypes, discuss possibilities for further exploration, and go over easy methods to produce monotypes at home. / No previous printmaking experienced required. / Facilities fee of $25 and materials fee of $15 in addition to class tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.

What to Bring (all optional): Photographs or imagery, textured materials, stencils, ideas, or sketches for a self‐directed project. Paper will be provided, but students may also bring their own. A heavyweight printmaking paper is advised, such as Rives BFK, Fabriano, Stonehenge or Domestic etch.

What to Wear: Clothes appropriate for messy creativity; closed‐toe shoes. An apron may be helpful.
