Monotype Printing is an incredibly immediate, playful, and multi-faceted type of printmaking, which could be described as a printed painting. Through learning and practicing a variety of transfer techniques, students will establish an understanding of the properties of ink, paper, pressure, and how they interact to create a broad range of aesthetic possibilities. Once the class has explored a variety of approaches, including additive and reductive ways to develop an image, and ink-mixing skills, each student will develop a series of prints exploring a process, a theme, or a narrative.

Matt Barteluce is a New Jersey native and amateur ufologist.  He is an artist, illustrator and graphic designer who received his BFA in 2003 from Maryland Institute College of Art and his MFA in 2010 at the School of Visual Arts.  Until 2014 he worked as an art director for Young & Rubicam Group, a worldwide advertising agency.  During that time he co-founded 'Carrier Pigeon', a quarterly fine art and literature magazine with a group of peers.  He is currently director of Guttenberg Arts, a 501c3 non profit arts organization. As Guttenberg Arts director he acts as an advocate for artists helping them achieve their fullest potential. His current body of work titled "High Strangeness" consists of a series of prints that are a playful exploration of all things paranormal and conspiratorial. He finds inspiration from far-fetched theories and illustrates them through 2-color silkscreens, woodblock prints and etchings. From Big Foot to underground bases, this body of work is intended to be a sort-of conversation starter and invites viewers to let go a little and embrace the weirder, more mysterious side of the world we live in.  He has taken much of his inspiration from the artist Albertus Seba and his book the Cabinet of Natural Curiosities.  Like Seba, Matt is documenting these modern day mysteries and like all things preternatural, he's hidden clues and deeper mysteries within each print.
