Enrol in Printmaking - Watercolour Monoprints: The Floating Washes

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. Learn proper use of an etching press, preparation printmaking plates and paper, correct numbering, signing, and care of your prints. Explore at least six entirely different approaches to the medium, emphasising the manipulation of watercolour washes on the plate's impermeable surface that allow for a floating of colour in a way no other medium can. Discover 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. No previous experience in either watercolours or printmaking is required to achieve beautiful results.
