Days 4-8: Monotype
This is a 5-day period for you and your group to explore the method of monotype together. We will briefly go over the roles of Materials Manager, Studio Monitor and Clean-Up Facilitator. You can find this info here: PRINTMAKING JOBS
Then we will observe a demonstration and get to work creating great prints!
Day 9-13: Collagraphy
This next method involves creating a matrix (printing plate) by gluing objects to a surface. We will use found textures to create our matrix. Then we will aim to pull at least 5 great prints from it over these days.
