This workshop will use the model as a subject matter as we explore the fundamentals of monotype. The immediacy of monotypes allows for multiple prints to be made relatively quickly, permitting a fresh exploration of line, mark and gesture. On the first day, trace monotype will be introduced-a simple and direct process that combines drawing and printmaking, and students will practice additive and subtractive techniques. We will create prints with and without a press and discuss methods for modifying inks, paper choices, color overlays, overprinting and stencil techniques. On the second day, the techniques covered will be applied to create monotypes from a live model. Previous printmaking or drawing experience are not required.
