I’m teaching a three-session class (three Thursday mornings 10am-12:30pm) on the Gelli Plate at Essex Art Center this Spring. This is a great art center that offers classes for all ages on a range of topics. Also, for me, this is the first multi-session class I will be offering. In this class we will have time to go deeper with the Gelli plate and explore how to make it work for you.
Class Description: Gelli Plate is a gelatin-based printing plate that is very easy and fun to work with, requiring just a few tools and supplies. Beginners and experienced artists can enjoy experimenting with a wide range of techniques when printing with the Gelli Plate. The focus of this class will be to experiment with methods for making patterns using the plate. Students will leave with a good understanding of how to use their Gelli Plates at home as well as ideas on what to do with all of their Gelli prints!
