Monotypes are a painterly printmaking process.  It offers the flexibility and freedom to create prints using drawing and painting methods, each print being unique. Monotypes unlike many other printing methods do not require a press. They offer the exciting freedom to work with a variety of materials and methods that give you the opportunity to create with spontaneous and often surprising results. Gel Plates offer additional flexibility for textural printmaking. We will explore the singular unique impressions that can be created by combining these techniques and simple materials to achieve a creative understanding of this fun and versatile printing method for seasoned artists and beginners alike.
