Monoprint – Tara Sabharwal

Lab fee: $70
Class limit: 6
Student Material List
Explore monoprinting by building up a colorful, painterly surface on plexiglass with oil- or water-based inks. We will draw with brushes and brayers and work reductively with a variety of ink viscosities, transparencies, and opacities. Students will be able to develop their prints by building richly layered surfaces over several press runs. You’ll learn how to combine stencils, chine collé, and textured fabrics and materials in the printing process. Pre-existing substrates (such as etchings or collagraph plates) can also be used to produce new variations. This is a great way to loosen up, work rapidly and intuitively and develop a new vocabulary informing your ongoing artistic practice. This class is open to students of all experience levels.
This class is currently filled. Please call (845) 658-9133 to inquire about the class wait list.
Tara is a deeply knowledgeable printmaker. Last fall we observed not only her facility making plates, but also her uncanny color mixing and layering abilities as she made monoprints to combine with intaglio prints.
