Monotype Printmaking - the Art of the Printed Painting with Wayne Viney
This is an introduction to monotype printmaking with master printmaker Wayne Viney. This class caters to both beginners and those with some printmaking experience. Some drawing and painting skills are helpful, but are not a prerequisite. We'll work with collage, still life objects, and photographs or images you may wish to bring.
Most of the time will be spent doing black and white or colour monotypes and printing them on the press. The appeal of the monotype lies in the unique translucency that creates a quality of light very different from a painting on paper or a print, and the beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing mediums
