What is monoprinting?

Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, which allows for multiple originals. Monoprints are known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques; it is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike. The beauty of this medium is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printing, painting and drawing media.

About the Instructor

Mansi is a self-taught artist and Los Altos resident. She has had her art exhibited at the Los Altos Library, Rick’s Cafe, Urfa Bistro, Red Berry Coffee Bar, Hillview Community Center, The Original Pancake House and the Lexus Showroom among others. She has led workshops for seniors as well as preschoolers. No matter the audience, her goal is to focus on free-spirited creations. Her master’s degree is in journalism and she has two decades of professional experience in marketing and communications, but art became her calling, creating custom pieces of joy became her vocation. She wants her students to feel the rush that comes from experimenting with different media, using colors as a way to express themselves, crafting with their hearts and hands...really tuning into their gut. Because when they listen to their intuition, they create art that connects with the soul.

She specializes in using various substrates as her canvas, painting with a brushless technique and creating extraordinary functional art from everyday items. Cloth, resin, wood, paper, metal, glass, leather and ceramic tiles are her favorite canvases. Her mantra is “art should be something you can use.” She has a collection of gift items available at Present in Downtown Los Altos and at various pop-ups she does throughout the Peninsula and South Bay Area.
