This 3-hour course will explore methods of monoprinting, or the the practice of making unique prints. Students will be introduced to basic print techniques that do not require a press and can be easily done at home.
Techniques will include stamping, texture-transfer, photocopy transfer, and stenciling, among others. Students will explore the surprising possibilities of repetition as they learn how to build up their imagery using these basic print strategies.
Beginners welcome, and print swaps encouraged!
Please bring a handful of small black and white photocopies to class with you (approximately 4" x 5") or email them to email@example.com in advance of class so we can print for you. We'll also have some images on hand for you to work with.
