Mono Printing


Learn the basics of the ancient medium of printmaking for the first time, or hone your existing skills and knowledge. In this 2 hour workshop the fundamentals of monotype printmaking will be explored. Tide pool and ocean creatures, beach vistas, flora and fauna are among the many inspirations found in the natural seascape of Cannon Beach. Utilizing the additive or “light-field” technique, students will create several one-of-a-kind mono prints. You’ll be guided through a painterly process of applying paint or ink directly to a printing plate, transferring the painted image to a piece of paper, rubbing, then pulling the printed paper from the plate to reveal the transferred image. Alternately, experimenting with the subtractive, or “dark-field” technique, the plate is covered with a layer of ink or paint, and the image is formed by manipulating and removing the ink or paint using a variety of tools, including brushes, rags, or your own fingers. Each plate typically yields one monotype, but subsequent pulls (sometimes called ghost impressions because of their relative faintness) can be made from the residual mediums on the plate.
