The Studio Sampler Class Four: Gelatin Plate Printmaking with Lois Anne

Saturday, March 23, 9 a.m.– noon

This class is an opportunity to explore a unique approach to printmaking. The printing plates are made from food grade gelatin (plain, not fruit flavored) and can be used for a variety of printmaking processes including monotypes, relief printing, and stamping. The workshop will cover plate preparation, introductions to various processes, and exploration with water-based inks & paints, focusing on time for participants to experiment and develop their own approaches.
 
Participants should bring a notebook & pencil, and (if you have them) watercolors, brushes, water-based inks, favorite printmaking or drawing paper. (Inks, watercolors and paper will be provided, but you might like to bring preferred ones if you have them.)
 
Lois Anne is a painter, printmaker and poet who has maintained her studio in Rockland since 1984. Spontaneity and surprise...that you don't really know how a piece will turn out until you pull the paper off the plate, that bit of lack of control... continues to excite her about the monotype and printmaking process.
Please note this class is part of the nine-week Studio Sampler class. You may sign up for the Sampler class as a whole by returning to this page, but not for this individual class. Thank you!
