ABOUT THIS COURSE:
Monoprint = Unique Print that already has an image incised or collaged into it.
Monotype = A print pulled from a painting on a nonabsorbent plate.
These new sessions in monotype and monoprint will introduce more techniques and encourage new and repeating participants, to delve into this vast medium that is so like painting and at the same a new intimate dialogue with will be created with the concept of ‘the transfer image’. Monotypes and monoprints will be printed by hand. Water-base inks, markers, and crayons are applied to a variety of nonabsorbent surfaces to create exotic reticulating washes, bends and expressive brush strokes. Specific water-base inks will be used while varying traditional Hanga woodblock methods. Gouaches and intense water-based pigments can mixed with a range of vehicle bases, Nori. Gum Arabic, and Speedball extender base. The use of Akua ink which is a Soy based ink will also be demonstrated. À poupée inking and chine-collé (collage through the press) as well as print paper/collage materials, archival gluing, tinting methods, and proper presentation will be discussed.
We will chronicle the unique print through multiple reactivated and drawn again images. Endless variations will be created using single and multiple print matrixes. Discover fresh personal imagery through print progressions!
Use your drawings, collages, prints, photo ideas–or plan to work extemporaneously. This workshop will fulfill beginners to advanced printmakers.
Here is a new demonstration sequence:
Week 1: Intro to Monotype – The type of inks that can be used from Waterbase to Soapbase to Oilbase inks. Suggested ways to search out and create an image will be covered. Also proper clean-up will be explained
Week 2: Monoprint – Exploring the Matrix – Variations from smooth to rough surfaces. Building a collagraph, drypoint, stencil both movable and stationary. Printing from a Xerox Copy – lithostyle
Week 3: Chine Collé – gluing through the press and Collage techniques
Week 4: Multiplate monotype+print – Image Overlays and registration techniques
Artists may take this course repeated times and continue to explore these infinite techniques. Print independently during the week. After the completion of each demo and lecture, submit your work and participate in a lively group critique. Students will learn how to print without a press Monotypes and Monoprints, at both beginning and advanced levels.
Deadline for registration is 7 PM on the day before the first class.

Here is what our students are saying:
“Lisa does a great job of showing us so many options for working with water-based inks”
“Lisa shares a lot of information about different inks and processes to obtain certain results. She is always encouraging and takes the time to give good insight into each student’s print. It is also great to see how Lisa works to create her own beautiful prints.”
