Enrol in Printmaking - Floating Washes of Colour
Course Code: ARTS0182
Non-toxic watercolour monoprinting is a dynamic art form combining the unlimited palette and radiant flow of watercolours with an unusual diversity of beautiful and compelling techniques unique to this process. You will learn proper use of an etching press, the preparation of your printmaking plates, the paper, the correct numbering, signing and care of your prints, plus at least six entirely different approaches to the medium with emphasis on the manipulation of watercolour washes on the plate's impermeable surface that allows for a floating of colour in a way no other medium can. You will also be taught how to do watercolour monotypes at home without a press. This art form works with you...not having to print within a given time frees you to progress and play at your own pace with options for re-working, experimenting and even deleting without losing the entire work. This exciting process loosens artistic tightness, inspires confidence and expands creativity. You need not have previous experience in either watercolours or printmaking to achieve beautiful results.
