I love creating abstract figures. They represent all of us, they can be poignant and haunting. In this class we’ll create printed backgrounds, using your gel plate as a painting tool. Then, we’ll create abstract figures on the backgrounds with my favorite methods—painting, reduction, printing, chipboard prints, and more.a
Instructor will provide:
stencils for sharing
collage fodder for sharing
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
Your art journal
9x12 Watercolor or mixed media paper pad, student grade is fine (I like Cason XL). We need lots of paper to play on!
Marking tools like Scribble Sticks, Stabilo All pencils, etc.
Spray bottle with water
Wipes/paper towels/water container to wash brushes
Gel plate, any size should work fine.
Your favorite stencils.
OPTIONAL One or two small canvases or wood panels, if you want to create on a substrate other than paper. Or, you can skip the canvases/panels and just work on paper. Up to you.
Plain collage paper tissue or deli paper
