Description

Monoprinting is a one-of-a-kind printed painting, a versatile printing process in which inks are applied directly onto or wiped away from a Plexiglas surface referred to as a plate. The plates are printed by hand so the students can execute ideas quickly, allowing for a very spontaneous way of generating ideas. As students gain confidence and learn the intricacies of printing, experimentation with the medium is encouraged. The basics of printing set-up and technique, including mixing inks and learning printmaking terminology, are a fundamental part of this workshop. Students will learn the practicalities of single and multi-plate (layered) registration, texturing and drawing techniques, stencils and collagraphy-based techniques (printing with found materials). Please note that not-toxic, water-based media are used in this course.

Notes:
- This in-person course will be taught at the Westerly Education Center in Westerly, RI.

Description

In this online course, participants will learn, through demos and tutorials, how to create one-of-a-kind silkscreen prints. The process involves using water-based silkscreen techniques that are easy to use in a non-studio context, including drawing directly onto screens and transferring the images using clear ink and a squeegee. Water-soluble pastels and watercolor will be used, as well as water-based printing ink, for a nontoxic and easy-to-clean-up practice. This course will include how to modify the practice for home studios and an introduction to plein-air (working outside directly from nature) work, basic silkscreen registration and stencil methods while working from staged still lifes. No prior experience with printmaking is required.

Notes:
- This is an asynchronous online course with no live class sessions or set meeting times. The course will include video presentations, detailed tutorials and discussion forums. Assignments will be sequenced so that one leads to the next and will include project deadlines. Students receive individualized support for idea development and critique of work. To keep pace with the course, students should expect to log in daily to CE Link, our online course management platform.
