Monoprinting without the Press @ Art Collective

Join Bette for some monoprinting fun!

Welcome to our Gel Printing Plate Extravaganza! Get ready to dive into a world of vibrant colors, unique patterns, and endless possibilities. In this lively and hands-on class, we’ll be unleashing our creativity through the magic of gel printing.
Imagine wielding an array of tools – stencils, rubbing plates, stamps, botanicals, and texture tools – as you embark on a journey to create your own decorative papers. With the gel printing plate as our canvas, you’ll learn a multitude of techniques to craft one-of-a-kind prints that will leave you in awe of your own artistic prowess.
But that’s not all – we’ll be printing on more than just paper! Deli paper and fabric will also become your playground as you experiment with different surfaces and textures, expanding your creative horizons. The papers you create won’t just be confined to the studio – they’ll be versatile additions to your artistic toolkit. From journals to collage, framed artwork to cards, your prints will infuse a touch of whimsy and personality into any project they grace.
And here’s the cherry on top: In this class, we’ll take your stunning prints and transform them into a simple yet charming journal. A perfect keepsake to showcase your newfound printing prowess and to spark inspiration for future artistic endeavors.
So come join us at Art Collective Frederick, where creativity knows no bounds and every print tells a story. Let’s roll up our sleeves, get messy, and embark on a colorful adventure together!
