Monotype: The Painterly Print

Monotype: The Painterly Print

Join printmaker Heather Aston for a week of monotype printmaking. This unique process provides the artist with tools and materials that yield unparalleled results that are often innovative and surprising. Exploring watercolour, oil based etching inks, lift prints, chine collé and layered techniques you will progress through a series of steps, that will open new possibilities for expression.

Students will receive individual attention regarding drawing, painting and composition while ultimately pulling prints from a plexiglass matrix to paper using a manual press. The excitement of transformation and discovery is inherent in this media and is sure to inspire and fascinate participants. There will be discussion and class critiques throughout the week.
