In just one day, students will learn several techniques for pulling beautiful one-of–a-kind prints from Plexiglas plates. Monotype is a fun, forgiving, and incredibly versatile medium that allows you plenty of room for experimentation with color and texture. Participants will learn methods of direct painting, additive and reductive inking, chine collé, and stenciling using a wide variety of materials and tools. At the end of the workshop, each student will leave with several finished works of art. This class is ideal for those with little to no art experience looking to have a creative and fun experience, but is also great for more skilled students interested in learning new techniques.Class Schedule & Tuition
