This workshop introduces artists to the basic fundamentals and concepts of monotype printing in an environment that practices newly developed ideas and methodologies. Participants will learn how to develop an image, how to transfer the image to paper, and how to print with emphasis on the development of each class member’s aesthetic concerns as well as exercises in color and color relationships. The workshop will begin with group demos covering basic oil-based monotype, moving onto more advanced chine-colle’ and Xerox lithography processes. During this workshop artists will also be working with multiple plates, second pulls (ghosts), stencils, wet and dry paper, and a variety of mixed approaches ending with a group critique.
