Monotype is a printmaking technique in which ink is directly applied to a plate and printed onto paper to create a unique work. Though other printmaking techniques are designed around the creation of multiples, monotype stands apart because of its singular nature and expressive, painterly qualities. Colored inks will be used to create a wide range of visual effects, from thick brushstrokes to watercolor-like washes. The workshop will cover the basics of creating a printed image, as well as how to mix and modify the inks to achieve new and exciting effects. Monotype offers a speed and fluidity that few media can claim, and is a technique that can produce limitless visual possibilities.
