MONOTYPE WORKSHOPS

THOUGHTS AND INFO ABOUT MONOTYPE

 

 A monotype is a one-of-a-kind  image that has been printed from a plate that has a completely smooth surface

and has no repeatability to it other than a ghost print (if there is enough paint left on the plate).
 

Monotypes always have a chance factor which makes this process exciting and often adds an element of mystery...

It is this transformative aspect that unleashes an unusual high level of spontaneous creativity.

The most common response when we pull the print is "Wow!"...it's usually a total surprise,

nothing like what we thought  and usually even better than we imagined it would be.

 

Watercolor Monotype is especially attractive for painters since the print could either be the end product but

more often the beginning of a painting or a mixed media art piece. Since the painted plates are printed on

hot press watercolor paper, the print can be continued as a watercolor painting.

The printing is done by hand which has advantages printing with a press does not have.

Both Watercolor Monotypes

by Anouk Johanna

Levels: All

Offered: Sunday Afternoon, 8/18/19, 10am - 4pm

Instructor: Anouk Johanna

Watercolor Monotype is a wonderful alternative process for painters.

Monotypes always have a chance factor which makes the process exciting and often adds

an element of mystery. It is this transformative aspect that unleashes an unusual high level of

spontaneous creativity. The most common response when we pull the print is “Wow!”…it’s usually a

total surprise, nothing like what we thought and usually even better than we imagined it would be.

 

It also is a relatively fast process in comparison to pure painting. Using Hot Press water color paper

will give students the option to continue to build on their print using watercolor if desired as seen above.

Anouk will start the workshop with up to an hour of demos of various techniques and approaches.

At the end there will be a constructive Group Critique and/or Feedback of students work.

Students are encouraged to bring personal images to work from. There will be inspirational Hand Outs

for all participants as well.
