Printmaking Methods: Collagraph, Monotype, & Mixed Media – Sophie Loubere

Monotype and collagraphy are painterly, spontaneous and accessible printmaking techniques! In addition to learning these approaches to printmaking, you’ll experiment with incorporating other mark making methods, print transferring, gold, silver, and copper leaf and unconventional materials like patina solution. You will make your own collagraphic plates with a variety of textural materials. Collagraphy is a printmaking process in which materials are applied to a board with ink or pigment, and then used to make a print onto paper.

Printmaking Techniques: Monotype – Klara Glosova
Saturday-Sunday | 8/3-8/4 | 9:30 A.M.-4:30 P.M.


This class is an introduction to monotype. Monotype is a basic printmaking technique with which artists draw, paint, use stencils, and otherwise manipulate the smooth surface of a printing plate (typically acrylic or copper) to create an image which is then transferred onto a sheet of paper by pressing the two together. Monotype produces a unique print, it is a versatile medium closest to painting. Monotype doesn’t require special chemicals and extensive technical knowledge, it is therefore one of the most accessible printmaking techniques. Recommended for those who want to explore printmaking or painters looking to learn more about breakdown and structure of images (such as color and composition).

Printmaking Techniques: Reliefs – Klara Glosova
Saturday-Sunday | 8/24-8/25 | 9:30 A.M.-4:30 P.M.


This class is an introduction to linocut. Linocut is a basic printmaking technique in which artists use tools to carve marks into the surface of a plate. Like woodcut, linocut is a reductive method: the final image is produces by removing negative areas. Linocut produces results similar to woodcut except plates are made of soft rubber or linoleum, therefore easier to carve. Students will learn how to produce both single color and multi-color prints, foe which the process requires breaking down the image into a sequence of steps corresponding to each color. Starting with an idea, a drawing or a photograph, you will learn to analyze and deconstruct images in order to put them back together to produce linocut prints.
