The Art of Monoprinting

July 26, 2018, 6:00 pm

* * * This program will be held at Rubber City Prints * * *
467 West Market Street, Akron, OH

Erin Guido and Erik Neff are printmakers from the Akron Art Library collection who create monoprints—a one of a kind printed painting.

Interested in trying your hand at the most painterly method of printmaking techniques? The Rubber City Prints team will lead demonstrations on creating line, texture and colors for printing with intaglio and block printing ink. Participants will then create large-scale prints using methods learned with intaglio inks and an etching press to transfer the image to paper. Everyone will get a chance to turn the wheel and leave with a beautiful 18 x 24 in. monoprint. 

$35 per person or $65 per group of two
Registration required. Click the link / button below to register. Space is limited, only 16 spots available.

This program is part of the Akron Art Library, an art lending program in partnership with the Akron-Summit County Public Library. Find out more about the Akron Art Library here.
