Mission muralist Patricia Rodriguez is teaching a class tomorrow at the Frank Bette Center for the Arts on monotype printing without a press. It may sound like an oxymoron but it’s a class focused on a different technique to transfer the image onto paper.
The three-hour-long class will cover how to print the image drawn or painted onto a dry sheet of paper with a plexi-glass plate. Traditionally, monotype printing was done into an etched surface and the image was then transferred into a dry surface with the use of a printer, making the process a bit more complicated.
Here are more details on the class.
