What you'll learn in this printing class:

This class will guide students on a deep dive into the possibilities of monoprint and monotype - processes that lend themselves to immediacy and experimentation, but can also produce finessed and complex imagery. The class will introduce additive and reductive monotype processes as well as elements of collagraph and chine collé, and will go on to cover multi-layer registration, allowing for the planning and production of more complex compositions. 

Students will have the opportunity to draw upon both the collections of the Art Institute and the immediate environment of downtown Chicago in their work, and can expect to produce a number of unique prints and variable editions during this weekend intensive.

A leader in educating artists, designers, and scholars since 1866, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) offers nationally accredited degree programs as well as Continuing Studies programs for adults and children, ages 4-18.
