Spotlight on: local beginner printmakers, specifically monoprinters! All art was made in a Printmaking & Fabric class taught at Ragged Edge Print Studio in Cohoes. Students ranged in age from 11 to full-size adult. 🙂
Students sketched their design (in this case a bird of their choosing), used watercolors and watercolor crayons to draw on plexiglass, then transferred the image to fabric to create a one-of-a-kind monoprint. Once dry, monoprints were turned into sachets or stuffed pillows.
Some students drew very realistically like the baby chicken drawing, while others made more stylized birds like those below.
