Course description

Learn the basics of printmaking through a simple and popular technique known as the 'monotype'. Making a monotype print involves no toxic materials or laborious technique. As its name suggests a monotype is a one-of-a-kind print. Rather than carving or etching, a monotype is made by painting with ink on a smooth surface.

For prospective students who are unfamiliar with monotype prints, you can view a collection of student's prints and images of the studio on the instructor's website.

No knowledge of drawing or painting is needed to enjoy its immediacy and rich textural effects. One can make a print in just a few minutes with almost no technical skill, and some techniques can be used at home.

This course is designed for:
  • Anyone who would enjoy having a new creative experience.
  • Working WICE members who would enjoy a relaxing and creative Saturday activity.
  • Artists of all kinds who want to learn and practice new techniques.
  • Former students of Jan Olsson's printmaking workshops who would like to continue to build their skills.
  • Those who enjoy sharing a creative activity with others.
Course requirements:
  • No prior experience is necessary. This class is open to all levels and may be repeated. Materials are provided. Students will need to bring a cover-up and picnic lunch.
