Monotype Printing Returning To HealingNewtown
The Center for Contemporary Printing will be returning to HealingNewtown, 14 West Street, for a final monotype printing workshop on Saturday, October 11, from 1-4 pm.
The workshop will explore more advanced techniques in monotype. Basic techniques will also be reviewed.
Very similar to painting, monotype involves applying inks to a plexiglass plate, then running the plate and paper through a press to create the image. Inks can be applied in a variety of ways to make a huge range of effects and marks. Students can apply ink with fingers, brushes, rollers, and stencils, and can layer color by running.
Appropriate for all ages, this workshop will include lots of personal attention to allow for artists at many different levels to participate, with an emphasis on experimentation. Students should be prepared with some source imagery (photographs, drawings, paintings) to use as inspiration.
