This is both a Print Club offering and a workshop anyone can take—no experience required. This workshop uses printmaking techniques (usually employed to make multiples of the same image) to make singular works of art. The results can stand alone, easily lead to a series of different but related prints, or become collage papers, backgrounds for other works, and the like. Monotypes can be quick, rather large, very low tech (no chunk of time invested in making a reusable plate), highly experimental, and very colorful. You’ll learn to use ACA’s etching press, to register your plate & print (so you can print multiple times on the same sheet of paper and have the image line up), to add chine collé or collage, and many different ways to make marks and to apply/remove ink. You can incorporate other prints you’ve made (bring the plates &/or prints), collage bits, any work on paper (from parts of old drawings & watercolors to photos)—or you can use what we have on hand for you.
