Monotypes are paintings on smooth acrylic plates transferred to paper once only. Artists ranging from Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Ross Moffett, and more recently Joan Snyder and Michael Mazur have used the monotype medium to express a more spontaneous and evocative range of drawing, painting and printmaking combinations.

Students will make painterly spontaneous images on acrylic plates using small rubber brayers, brushes, Oil Bars, or stencils, and oil base etching ink. Dampened 100% rag paper placed on top of the inked plate, and passed through the press with gentle pressure, results in a unique impression that is intimately and permanently bonded with the fibers of the paper. Overprinting and contemporary experimental approaches with larger rollers produce magical surprises. The glistening layers of radiant ink create truly unique images with depth, mystery, memory and delight. Demonstrations each day will help to develop individual explorations. Beginner to advanced students are welcome. Clean-up will be with baby oil or Simple Green.

Zavorskas Print Studio is air-conditioned and close to Quanset Pond and Pleasant Bay beaches.
