MonoPrint & Monotype Workshops

 A monoprint is created by printing on a carved plate, then manipulating the image by over-printing, hand-coloring or changing the print in some way so that each one is significantly different. Monotypes are also one-of-a-kind prints where the print is created on a plate, then transferred to paper. The two workshops I offer in this fun printmaking medium will open your creative mind to the many exciting possibilities of one-off prints. Let go, lose control and embrace the surprises!

Introductory class, all levels, all adult

If you've heard the buzz about the gelatin printing arts craze, and are wondering what it's all about, let me introduce you. A few months ago, curiosity got the better of me. I jumped in and continue to learn more as I experiment with this amazing monoprint medium. You can read my post HERE. Using stencils, stamps, strings and just about anything else you can think of, you can create a variety of unique one-of-a-kind prints that stand alone or can be used as collage material in your mixed media works. If you are interested in learning something fun in a relaxed atmosphere, I will show you what I've learned and in the process, you will probably stumble on something you can share with me. Seriously, the surprises are endless! Everyone is an artist with this medium... everyone!!

Intermediate class, some painting skills required

A monotype is a one-of-a-kind, hand pulled print. Making monotypes requires a lot of faith in the creative process. The artist never knows for sure what the final result will be until the monotype is pulled off the plate. I love that element of surprise!

A variety of imagery can be created with this process. You may enjoy experimenting with monotype as an abstract medium. Personally, I enjoy using this method for creating more representational art. Making monotypes this way, allows me the fun of painting while at the same time helping me to let go of the need to totally control the outcome. The end result is both painterly and exciting and can be achieved in no other way. 

Discover your own personal style by experimenting with this fun, creative process. In addition, we will also learn how to create trace monotypes - another expressive form of monotype used for line imagery.
