ABOUT THIS CLASS:
Historically a rather obscure process used primarily for the edification of the artist, the unique prints of Monotype, Trace Monotype, and Movable Collagraph have nonetheless captured the imaginations of contemporary artists and collectors alike. Unlike other printmaking techniques that can produce exact copies of the same image (etching, for example), the monotype (and its related techniques of trace and movable collagraph) is a unique art object more akin to a painting. In this Foundations class, students will be introduced to the delights, challenges, and possibilities of these unique printmaking processes. Gaining confidence with various printmaking materials such as ink, image-making methods, tools, paper, and terminology will inspire artists at every stage of their creative pursuit. In addition, students will gain an understanding of general printmaking procedures, graphics studio practices, and safety protocols.
Students will be encouraged to participate in ongoing discussions about composition, formal and conceptual elements/ideas, motivation, presentation, and contemporary prints and printmakers.
No experience necessary, but a commitment to artistic exploration is required. Ages 16+
