Monotypes are a natural extension from painting into printmaking. It is often referred to as the “painterly print.” However, there are several techniques in this distinctive process which yield effects and imagery that can’t be achieved through painting. Scott will be leading students through various monotype techniques that can be done at your kitchen table – without a press!
