Beginners and continuing printmakers, during the course of three Friday sessions (note: there will be no class January 18), will learn and practice the basic skills needed for mixing ink, using the press, and sharing the studio with other printmakers as well as practicing the techniques used in monotype, which is the manipulation of ink on a smooth plate to create a single, unique image.  We will cover how to create transparency and opacity, using different tools to make marks, and printing with multiple plates. This course is a thorough immersion in monotype and is a great value: it works out to $16/hr for 12 hours of instruction.

This class is for:

  • Anyone needing a refresher in or first-time foundational instruction about the print studio tools, equipment, supplies, and practices
  • Those interested in practicing monotype method of printmaking within the structure of an introductory class
  • This class alone does not qualify you for working independently in the studio, but this class plus either Introduction to Printmaking: Intaglio or Introduction to Printmaking: Relief prepares you to complete the Skills Competency checklist for fob access to print studio


  • Prerequisite: none.
  • The materials fee of $15, included in the price of the class, covers ink and student grade printing paper.  Additional paper is available for purchase in the print studio.
  • Feel free to bring a meal or snacks. Food is allowed in the common area adjacent to the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat. 
This introductory class is taught by a rotating roster of experienced BARN studio printmakers.
