Monoprint $65.00 Saturday May 2th & 9th 1-5pm
Monotype is a singular (mono) image taken from a plate that is drawn or painted on. It is a combination of printmaking and painting. The results are highly original and cannot be replicated in a different process. Monotype allows a lot of room for experimentation and play. It is a great process both for painters who would like to begin working with printmaking as well as printmakers who would like to use a looser and more direct technique of image making. Monotypes can be executed on a variety of surfaces including metal, plastic, varnished cardboard and plexiglass. The inks can be oil or water-based. The image will be executed on copper plates which will allow the introduction of drypoint as another means of mark making. Sign up with the AS220 online shop!
