Monoprint and monotype printmaking techniques offer the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind prints that may be painterly or graphic, colorful or monochromatic. Drawing inspiration from artists including William Blake, Paul Gauguin and Edgar Degas, students explore a variety of monotype and
monoprint techniques. The direct nature of the process lends itself to exploration and experimentation. Technical demonstrations and in-class exercises introduces students to the range of possibilities offered by this unique medium. Students also work independently, with regular group and individual critiques, to produce a thematic body of work. Note: No class on November 21. All printmaking classes are held in MICAâ€™s printmaking studios unless otherwise noted. Open studio time, including evenings and weekends, is available to Continuing Studies students enrolled in printmaking courses
according to a schedule determined by the printmaking department. Ask your instructor for details.
