Explore monoprinting by building up a colorful, painterly surface on plexiglass with oil- or water-based inks. We will draw with brushes and brayers and work reductively with a variety of ink viscosities, transparencies, and opacities. Participants will develop their prints by building richly layered surfaces over several press runs and learn to combine stencils, chine collé, and textured fabrics and materials in the printing process. Pre-existing substrates, such as etchings or collagraph plates, can also be used to produce new variations. This is a great way to loosen up, work rapidly and intuitively, and develop a new vocabulary to inform your ongoing artistic practice. This class is open to all experience levels.
