Monoprint: Paint and Print

Course Description:
If you enjoy working spontaneously, Monotype, is an explorative process, as free as a brush stroke, or diverse and calculating as a drawn line. Degas, Gauguin, and Prendergast found mono print an exhilarating colorful painterly process in “of the moment’ scenes while Jenny Robinson’s Water Tower depicts structures both linear and detailed using a monochromatic palette. Whether a novice or adding to previous experience, this class will further your exploration.
