Printmaking – Exploring Monotype: Known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques, a monotype can essentially be called a printed painting. The main characteristic of this technique is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, making editions of prints is not possible because in this method images can only be made once. This class is designed to be 100% project based, and hands-on.  Students will work independently on numerous projects exploring a wide range of possibilities that this technique offers. Colorful acrylic paint, stencils, found objects, nature objects and more will be used to design and produce original artwork.
