The Gelli Plate is the latest technology in monotyping or Artist’s printing. It is easy and engaging for both beginners and advanced art makers. Students will thoroughly enjoy the process and create a pile of works that can be taken home and framed with pride, used for backgrounds in other art pieces, made into collages or glued into art journals. Turiya is the local Golden Artist Educator, and she will talk about the various kinds of paints that may be used on the Gelli plate and demonstrate three or four techniques that will keep the artists enthralled during our busy and exciting day. The Gelli plate is a very responsive medium for impressing all kinds of natural and manufactured items which give varying effects and lends itself to experimentation.
