About This Class

Make a Monoprint Using Acetate, Pen, and Ink is a class for anyone (beginner or not) who wishes to learn a fun and easy technique that embraces the unpredictable and celebrates the perfectly imperfect.

In this 20-minute class, you will learn the step-by-step process of creating a one-of-a-kind image via monoprinting on acetate. I will then demonstrate how to add color to your print using watercolors.

This simple process is a hybrid of drawing and printing that produces images chock-full of expressive inky goodness. By the end of this class, you will have all you need to produce your own unique image, as well as a new technique to add to your creative toolbox.

This is going to be fun! I’ve done a lot of printmaking over the years, but never with these materials. I love the loose, free style and can’t wait to get some acrylic ink and try it out!

Hello, I'm Lisa.

I have worked as a commercial artist for roughly the past two decades - mostly as an exhibit fabricator for natural history museums.

I really, really like learning and tend to collect skills like some people collect Pez dispensers or Precious Moments figurines. Making shoes and millinery flowers are amongst my favorite hobbies, although lately I have been concentrating on 2-D art and have become obsessed with pattern design.
