Monotype and monoprinting are forms of printmaking in which artists create unique prints through various transfer methods from a plate or matrix onto paper or other substrates. The course will teach students various painterly techniques (utilizing both additive and subtractive techniques in both oil and water based inks), stenciling and masking, chine colle, image transfer processes, block printing, overprinting and various other image making techniques. Students will be encouraged to experiment, play, explore and layer various techniques to create a portfolio of one-of-a-kind prints. The course will consist of hands-on demonstrations, slide shows of artist’s works, in class work time, discussions and critiques.
SRISA studio courses will have personal and course materials to be purchased in Florence. A complete list will be provided with the syllabus on the first day of class.
