Learn how to transfer painted images onto paper using a non-toxic household item as a printing press — gelatin provides an excellent surface for printmaking that is simple and provides for experimentation and unusual effects. This is a great class for art educators, emerging or established artists. Open to all levels of experience, you’ll be printing immediately and discovering the many ways to make beautiful marks on paper. We’ll wind down with a demonstration on how to “pour” a gelatin plate so you can continue from home.Paper, paints, stencils, and all the tools needed to participate will be provided, but if you have favorite supplies that you want to experiment with please bring them. That could be paper, paints (water soluble), fun items that can make stamps, stencils, sponges, paint brushes, brayers….anything your imagination wants to explore.  Participants should bring a bag lunch and/or snacks.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
