Monoprint Mania

June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018

Nicholas H. Ruth

During this workshop students explore a range of monoprint and monotype techniques to develop a highly personal approach to making unique prints. Monoprints encourage vibrant and luminous color, rich textures and spontaneous mark making. You will discover basic and intermediate techniques, including layering transparent color, hand cutting stencils, offsetting textures, trace monotype drawing and more. Through the ongoing development of a visual vocabulary and set of visual effects, participants will push their compositional ideas to make a powerful expression. Open to all skill levels.


Nicholas Ruth lives in Rochester, New York and is a professor of Art at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. He received his MFA from Southern Methodist University. Ruth maintains an active studio practice and has shown his work nationally and internationally in over 100 exhibitions.
