This 4-hour course will explore methods of monoprinting, or the practice of making unique prints. Students will be introduced to basic techniques of hand-printing – printing that does not require a press and can easily be done at home. Practices will include stamping, texture-transfer, photocopy transfer, stenciling, and reductive/additive painting among others. Students will explore the surprising and satisfying possibilities of repetition as they learn how to build their imagery using these basic strategies.
No previous knowledge of printmaking is necessary. Students will have devoted class time to troubleshoot, collaborate, and edition their imagery.
Price: $75 [$50 + $25 materials fee]
