Monotype & Monoprint Class — Variations in Time:

Goodman Color Monoprint Blu MuseWater-soluble oil-based , 10:00 am - 1 pm, Wednesdays,
Six classes, $285+ $25 materials. Ongoing.
Direct and expressive, monotype joins the radiant qualities of prints with the spontaneity of painting including the beauty of washes. Monoprint allows for a permanent repeatable element combined with one-of-a-kind effects. Explore the sequential possibilities of monotype to develop your image conceptually and formally.

Goodman demonstrates her image-making methods with black and color printing ink, ink modifiers, various drawing, painting and print tools, paper handling, single-and multi-pass printing procedures, hand coloring, chine colle and the development of "ghost" imagery through successive printing states. If participants choose to work in monoprint, a matrix form of printmaking such as drypoint will be explored in combination with monotype. Ferric chloride non-toxic etching and aquatint may be presented instead if in demand. All techniques may not be covered in one session -- it will depend on class dynamics. Individual and group critique as time allows. Additional open lab time available by arrangement. All levels welcome.

The latest water-soluble oil-based inks -- new ones that clean up with water but brilliant like traditional oil-based -- will be demonstrated in this class. Waterbased and oil-based etching inks and litho inks will be discussed. Health-conscious habits always stress minimal exposure to inks and solvent in all classes. Lab fee includes use of tarletan, inks and modifiers, mordants, solvents and some plastic monotype plates. Students supply own brushes, paper, and metal plates, etc. Supply list sent on receipt of registration. To register for workshops with credit card or Paypal go to registration page - click here.

"The best critiques I remember having!" -- Karen S., Berkeley, CA
"Thank you for the positive experience I encountered concerning our dialogue as you critiqued my work. You were extraordinarily helpful and encouraging in both your overall assessment of my art and your suggestions for further development. Your pointed solutions to technical and aesthetic problems regarding the individual pieces were what I needed." —Joan K., Chicago, IL
"Your critiques were great — obviously a strong point for you. Comments very helpful, not just making generalist comments like one usually hears. Seeing everyone elses work I was able to learn and get ideas." Chris P., Vancouver, Canada
"Her critiques were particularly strong. She is able to talk about process, where one’s strengths are and give leads to new approaches. She encouraged me to broaden my style and I think it will have lasting consequences."—MaryAnne. P., Evanston, Illinois
