the monotype is the link between printmaking and painting. monotypes are created by painting on acrylic glass and transferring the image onto a paper with the help of a printing press. unlike most printmaking processes, monotypes are unique images since most of the ink is transferred on the first print. In this course, students will explore monotypes and monoprints using a variety of oil- and water-based inks.
