Line is an essential element of design. Line creates movement, directs the eye and offers contrast to softer textures or large areas of color. This class explores ways to incorporate line while working in more painterly forms of printmaking such as monotype. Working with generously-sized plates, Patty Freeman Martin leads students through several techniques for adding rich, beautiful lines using drypoint, engraving, relief, counterproofing and trace monotype. Some printmaking experience recommended. Instructors: Patricia Freeman-Martin and Dawn Boone
