Learn to build bright and playful monoprints using non-toxic, water-based materials. This course explores the rich intersection between painting and printmaking. Students will print from watercolor paintings on plexiglass, plastic stencils, and water-soluble crayon drawings. Students will investigate various mark-making techniques and learn to experiment with the endless possibilities of ghost printing.
