$ 95  

Many people have tried Gel Plate Printing and make stacks of collage papers with it. In this class you will learn to make beautiful monotypes that are finished fine-art quality prints. It’s all about layering color and texture. No experience necessary! We’ll work with various papers, heavy and thin that can be used both as collage papers and finished, framable prints. You’ll learn how to apply bands of color and texture and develop some of your images . We’ll play with some transfer techniques and students will learn how to register colors on their prints. The class will end with students putting together a small accordion book with their best prints so they have a reference file for the various techniques.
