Monoprinting : Create Unique Printed Paintings

Monday-Wednesday, 7/11-7/13/2022, 9:00am-11:30am, online

Instructor: Alexandra Bailliere

Monoprinting is a fun printing process in which inks are directly applied to or wiped away from a surface for printing. This process creates a unique printed painting. In this 3-day workshop, you will learn cool monoprinting techniques you can easily do at home without access to a press. Over the course of three morning sessions, we will cover how to make a print, collographs, chine collé, rainbow rolls and watercolor monotypes. Monoprinting allows for a very spontaneous and immediate way of executing your visual ideas!
