Explore Monoprinting Techniques
Tuesday, March 2nd at 6:30 p.m.
Monoprinting techniques can include combining artistic methods and multimedia such as painting and drawing with lithography, etching or woodcut. Monoprints are unique, spontaneous and expressive, allowing more scope for abstract compositions and more detailed prints than other types of printing.
