First Impressions: Monotype Printmaking

This five-session course will provide an introduction to “painterly” printmaking methods, known as monotypes. Through instruction using essential techniques, lots of visual examples, and hands-on demonstrations, art educator Bob Phillips will encourage participants to explore drawing with fluid media to create additive light-field and dark-field prints, hand rubbed transfers, ghost transfers, watercolour monotypes, chine collé and much more! Although this is an introductory experience, substantial knowledge and comfort with printmaking will be achieved. Interactive critiques and individual consultation will further develop imagery and technical competence. Non-toxic printmaking materials and methods will be stressed. All materials are included.
