Students will be encouraged to use and combine various techniques, such as drypoint, soft and hard ground, aquatint and spit bite, as well as viscosity printing, transferring photocopies directly onto the etching plate and working in a painterly manner with toner or sugar lift.

Artists have long been intrigued with this popular medium for the speed, spontaneity, and open, free quality it offers. In brief, a monoprint is a method by which an image is created on a plate (such as Plexiglas®), and then transferred onto paper using a press. Many textures can be used to enhance the image. Limited editions or unique one-of-a kind prints can be created with the use of rich and colorful inks. The options are varied and endless. Luminous fluid brush strokes and delicate markings offer the elements of surprise. In addition to the monoprint, relief printing and image transfers will be introduced. Everyone works on individual projects in a supportive and informal class environment. All levels are welcome. The student will receive individual attention to help obtain the envisioned image. Attendance at the first class is strongly advised. Some materials are included; see additional materials list.
