You Should Be Gellin’ –Experimental Monoprinting & Creating A Gellin’ Journal

Trish McKinney
9:00 - 4:30
Saturday March 19

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

Learn the exciting world of mono-prints by using Gel-Press Plates with unusual textural elements to create layers of FUN! Students will experiment and pull several prints to create fun, future collage pages for a variety of applications. They will receive a handout describing how to create a very simple,16-page journal out of their gel press pages.
At the end of class, students will say: “Where did the all the time go?!” – always an indication of pure, unadulterated, creative play!
Trish will show students her unique way of finishing her Gellin’ Journals (see youtube video link below) by integrating their sketches with the fun patterns and textures on the journal cover pages and learning the important principal of harmony.
This class will answer the question: What can I do with all of my millions of gel prints?!
