Love mixed media? This class offers the perfect way to expand your repertoire by creating an array of one-off prints using acrylic paints and inks on gel plates and exploring other monoprinting techniques that do not require plates. The resulting prints can be stand-alone artworks and/or modified with paint, pastels, markers and pencils, or become material for collage.
Topics included: Gel plates and how make and use them; Gel printing techniques; Other types of printing plates and techniques for use; Acrylics and other printing media; Paper, materials and equipment for making monoprints; Approaches to designing prints with a theme or motif; How to modify and use prints in mixed media work
Level: All levels welcome – no experience necessary
