Printmaking Without a Press Two Ways, Part I: Monotype (5weeks/Online)

Printmaking Without a Press Two Ways, Part I: Monotype (5weeks/Online)

Instructor: Lee Newman

January 26, February 2, 9, 16 and 23

Tuesdays, 2-5 pm EST

 

Students interested in printmaking can still work from home without the use of a printmaking press. These two back-to-back classes, taught by two different instructors, show the potential for making sophisticated prints without expensive and space-consuming equipment.  Monotype and linocut are both mediums that lend themselves to at-home printmaking, and you will be surprised by the results. 

 

A monotype is a singular, unique print, usually painterly in quality, made by applying paint or printing ink to a flat sheet of metal, glass, or plastic called the plate. The painted image is then transferred to paper either by manually rubbing or by using a press. The image can be applied to the plate additively, by painting directly onto the plate with a brush, or subtractively, by covering the entire plate with a layer of ink then removing ink or paint using a variety of tools. Each plate typically yields one monotype, but subsequent prints (sometimes called “ghost impressions” because of their relative faintness) can be made from the residual mediums on the plate.  Monotypes, and their ghosts, can be further worked into with other materials to enhance them or create variations. Degas was a master of the monotype, and the class will look at his work as well as others.

 

This course is suitable for all levels.
