From the instructor who brought you "Prints and The Revolution" and "Prints and the New Power Generation"" comes Prints in Mono(print)". In this class we will learn to make monoprints (prints in a series), using a plexiglass plate as the matrix. The prints you make can stay as they are or be used to create collage, used as parts of mixed media pieces or used to make sculptures. The sky's the limit in this printmaking class.

At this time, registration for Prints in Mono(print) is closed.
