Gelatin Monoprinting is a popular technique used to create art for use in collages, art journals, and as backgrounds for paintings and drawings. Art instructor Patty Martucci will demonstrate how to use a Gelli Plate with acrylic paints, brayers, stencils, items found in nature (leaves/flowers) and cut paper to create these colorful and appealing pages. Students will explore new techniques each week. Beginners as well as more experienced artists are encouraged to register! This is a great opportunity for participants to “play” with new materials and processes. All materials will be provided, but students can also bring their own stencils and small, flat objects from nature if they wish.

Saturday, November 11, 18, 25, December 2, 9, & 16 (6-Weeks) Time: 12:00 - 2:00pm

Students will learn the process of choosing, arranging, and composing a tableau of objects to be painted. They will follow a logical flow of process from sketching and drawing the arrangements with an accurate drawing, and then transferring the drawing to canvas as preparation for painting. The painting itself will follow a process that is designed to make any subject approachable and understandable. The course will primarily be concerned with oil painting, but the same approaches will apply to acrylic painting as well so choose the medium of your liking. An emphasis will be placed on individual approach and creativity. A list of suggested colors, brushes, canvas, or other grounds and accessories will be provided. Some familiarity with drawing and painting is desirable, but not necessary.
