Monotype refers to the printmaking process in which ink is applied to a plexiglass and printed onto a piece of paper to create a unique print. Monotype has attracted a wide variety of visual artists because of its spontaneity and painterly qualities. Unlike other printmaking techniques, monotype allows for artists to easily and quickly create a print using the drawing or painting techniques they are already familiar with. This workshop will familiarize participants with the print shop and the process or monotype printing, as well allow for participants to realize their visual ideas in a new and exciting medium.
