Monotype: The Painterly Print


In this course participants will explore both watercolour and oil-based monotypes, lift print, chine collé and layering techniques.

Along with technique students are introduced to different papers, materials and the experience for expression while exploring colour, form and line. There will be discussion and class critiques throughout.
