$ 85  

Learn the exciting world of monoprints by using Gel-Press Plates with unusual textural elements on non-traditional surfaces to create layers of FUN! Students will experiment and pull several prints on a variety of unusual surfaces. Choosing their favorite print as the inspiration, students will finish by creating an abstract or representational painting. Students will learn how to create an abstract painting by reinforcing a new way of looking at compositional design principles. At the end of class, students will say: “Where did all the time go?!” – always an indication of pure, unadulterated, creative play!

Supplies to bring to class:  a Brayer - everything else will be provided - optional materials to bring: favorite mark making tools, texture making ephemra and stencils (only, if you have them)

Trish will provide everything else to take this class!   Art Materials Provided & Sponsored by: Gel Press, Golden, Princeton Catalyst, Strathmore Paper
