Monotype and Monoprints

Lower East Side Print Shop: actually and ironically located 36th Street and Eight Ave

Summer is a time for FUN and what could be funner than making ART ??? !!! So I enrolled in a Monotype course taught by Sarah Nicole Phillips at the Lower East Side Print Shop. I'm having a blast with the presses and learning new techniques.
Monotype is a form of printmaking that only creates ONE original print, as opposed to an edition. Monotypes like layering and different thicknesses of inks and even collage.

Here are a few examples of what I made:
