In this art class we are going to create beautiful collage papers using the gelli plate printing technique and then we will use those printed designs to create a finished collage painting.
I will teach you a thorough course of how to use the gelli plate. From printing basic backgrounds with 3 colours, then onto using various stencils and other applications.
We will experiment with using objects from around the house, and then how to enhance your prints with metallic colour.
You will learn all about interference paint and how complementary colour can create interesting contrast with your gelli plate prints.
This class is suitable for anyone wanting to learn this unique mono printing style. Perfect for beginners, I will show you each technique with clear examples, exactly how you can achieve these results at home.
In the second part of the class, we will review your prints, decide on your best designs and then continue on to create a collage painting.
I will then lead you step by step through my process of creating a collage, so that you will know how to use your own prints for this exciting creative medium.
At the end of the class you will know a multitude of ways to create prints with the gelli plate. You will also know how to use those designs to create a beautiful collage painting.
I’m really excited to work with you on this project. Gelli plate printing is a very simple technique, yet the resulting designs are extremely creative. I know you will become as addicted as I am to this fantastic process.
Don’t forget to post your projects. I would love to see your gelli plate prints and the collage you make with them.
This will be a lot of fun, highly experimental and creatively empowering, I look forward to seeing what you create, so let’s make art!
