Mano-a-Mono Printmaking



Class: Mano-a-Mono Printmaking

Instructor: Joe Ray

Medium: printmaking (mono prints) on paper

Date(s): Saturday, February 3, 2024

Time: 9am - 4pm

Cost: $110 per student


Class Description:

This monoprint printmaking class focuses on stencils and textures which are created, inked, and transferred on to paper. While there will be no actual press utilized for printing, we will be using brayers (hand rollers) to transfer the images to paper.

This process will encourage participants to be creative by using their own imagery (plus, I will give suggestions for creating stencil images as well) and utilize color to explore textures and patterns. Prior art experience is not necessary, but an open mind and willingness to explore is. Students will be asked to bring colored pencils, and other drawing instruments to incorporate with the monoprints, as well as x-acto knives, and/or scissors.

In addition to creating art during the workshop, I will be recommending techniques in which participants can continue to work on their images for the final product.
