Cost: 100 

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 students' prints and images of the studio on the instructional 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 skills, 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
  • accompanied children age 10 or over
  • artists of all kinds who want to learn and practice new techniques
  • those who enjoy sharing a creative activity with others.
Course requirements

No prior experience is necessary. This class is open to all skill levels and students can take the course multiple times to create new prints. All materials will be provided. Students will need to bring a cover-up and picnic lunch.
