Reductive Monoprinting

This course will introduce a specific and unique way to approach the monotype process. Students will learn how to create an image by covering a plate with ink, working reductively into the ink, and printing the image. This process will be repeated several times on the same piece of paper to create color mixing and to build depth in the image. Instruction will be given on each step of the process and students will have work time to create several finished pieces. This course has no structured lunch break, however, students are welcome to bring snacks and take breaks when needed.  / There is a $35 facilities fee and a $15 materials fee in addition to course tuition. / Open to students ages 18 and above. / View complete policies.
