I love working with my Gelli® Plate to create unique abstracted landscapes, the process of which I teach in the Introductory Class (details here). In “Gelli® Plate Plus,” we’ll learn two new monotype printmaking techniques (painting on the plate and “carving” transparent layers).
In addition, we’ll go through some old “almost-there” work one-by-one to determine exactly what they need to become a unique, finished piece of art. (Printmaking has a high “failure” rate, but there are lots of ways to save them!)
We’ll add animals, people, and more with watercolor, gesso, pencil, marker, colored pencil, charcoal, and collage!
