The Mono Printed Brushmark

21 Jan 2021 - 21 Jan 2021

Whether your interest is painting, drawing, collage or design, mono type printing is a spontaneous and creative process that can be integrated into your own art practice, and a great method of printing without a press.



The aim of the workshop is to create mono types through experimentation. Using a brush to apply acrylic paint onto a variety of surfaces such as timber, glass, acrylic or cardboard, then drawing and manipulating the paint with brushes, sticks, rags or fingers you are able to create a more dynamic print. 

If the weather is fine we shall spend a short time in the garden drawing and making pencil/crayon rubbings. By observing and creating different textures, lines, colour and shapes we can work towards replicating or developing some of these elements into expressing your visual story in print, whether abstract or realistic. 

Artists who use the mono printed brushmark technique as part of their visual language include Robert Motherwell, Pierre Bonnard, Pablo Picasso, Tracy Emin, Henri Matisse, Edgar Degas, Charles Blackman, George Baselitz and Andy Warhol.

Class Date: Thursday 21 January 2021.     Cost: $130.      Time: 10am - 4pm.
