Play with gelli plates, brayers, acrylic paints, stencils, and everyday objects to create textures with special effects and imagination! Gelli plate printing is a form of monoprinting in which a non-toxic gelatin slab is used as a printing `plate’ in conjunction with acrylic craft paints to create images. Very little pressure is required to make monoprints using this technique. One of a kind pieces of art can be used in scrapbooking, gift wrap, greeting cards, tags, book covers and your own piece of artwork! Please wear old clothing that may get paint on it.
This class is for kids ages 7-12 years old (flexible). This class meets in the Maker's Space & Mentor Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.
Materials needed for this class are provided.
