Monotype is a great way to learn about printmaking. This versatile medium has a painterly quality and is quite immediate. Students will be introduced to registration, printing in layers and using a press!
Students (ages 16+) learn to make monotypes, a single print from a metal or glass plate on which an image has been painted. This technique has been favored by artists since the 17th century and was explored by Rembrandt, Picasso, Matisse, Degas, Chagall and Gauguin. Painter and printmaker Claire Farrell received her training from Duke University, the University of South Carolina, Santa Raparata Art School in Florence, Italy, and Penland School of Craft and Design. She also studied extensively with Ron Pokrasso, a master printmaker and teacher from Santa Fe, NM. All supplies included.
