AP Art: Trace Monotype Printmaking Using the Pastel Resist Method

This week in AP Art we will learn to create a Trace Monotype Print using the Pastel Resist Method.  this is a relativly easy method of printmaking used by artists such as Gauguin and Degas (see below).  Today I will show the basics and tomorrow we will begin the demo and prints.
After we learn about the process start sketching out ideas for what kind of subject matter your print will have and what colors you will use.  Portraits or detailed images work best with this method as you can see in the example below.
