SKIN: The Art of Color Exploration & Monoprinting
Intimidated by portraiture? Don't be! In this class we will use mono printing to explore facial anatomy and expression. This class will cover additive and reductive methods of printing, color exploration of flesh, and compositions of portraiture. We will have a focus on color mixing to achieve realistic skin tones, producing beautiful monoprints.
