Instructor: Cheryl Miehl

The Gelli Plate is a tool that encourages play!  Join us as you learn to create amazing prints loaded with layers of color and design.  Prints can be made in just one layer, or through multiple layers where overlapping patterns create 1-of-a-kind papers! We will explore printing many colors in a single “pull” of the plate, or layer colors one “pull” at a time to build unique and interesting designs. We will use commercial stencils, and learn to make our own stencils for more personalized graphics. Color theory and composition will be discussed, and everyday objects will be used to create textures. Learn techniques to hand color finished prints and discover ways to use “junk” prints for other mixed media projects. We will generate a lot of art in three short days - the possibilities are endless with this versatile printmaking experience! Register by June 16 to avoid $20 late fee.

Course fee includes $25.00 Supply Fee.
