Beginners to advanced students are welcome.

Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only using a manual press. Students bring images of familiar beloved places, people, or things to each class and create painterly spontaneous images on smooth acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, produces a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory, and delight. Viscosity inking with larger rollers will be explored. Viscosity means flowability of a liquid. Inks are modified with oil or driers to be oily or stiff, so that one color repels another, with amazing results. An evocative, personal theme emerges with each print session. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Clean-up with baby oil or Gamsol.
