Print Info

Enjoy the spontaneity, exploration, experimentation and excitement of producing monotypes using inks and printing press at the SUNY Potsdam printmaking studio. Monotypes are one-of-a-kind prints, usually produced fairly quickly. Many artists use the monotype process to explore new approaches to their work; however, it is also a delightful process for artistic beginners to pursue. This class will explore various techniques of monotype printing by using screen printing, frames, and fabric ink, monotype printing with water-soluble crayons through a screen mesh, and traditional plate monotype with ink using stencils and drawn imagery.

A materials fee is required at the time of registration for this course. A check for $35 should be written to Deborah Steinberg and mailed in to the SOAR Office with the registration form. This fee will pay for Water-base Acrylic Textile Screen Printing Inks, Relief Inks and solvent. 

Hannah Hotaling is a SUNY Potsdam student with a major in Art Education. She is pursuing certification to teach grades K-12 and collegiate level.
