Golden OPEN Acrylics Monoprinting

A fun and fast paced one-day session creating beautiful prints without a press and paintings! We’ll use Golden OPEN Acrylics on Gelli Plates to create realistic or abstract artistic visions. You’ll learn what makes OPEN so unique and why it is ideally suited for this printing method. Weather abstract or painterly this method works great with any style. Learn how to ink the plates, paint on the plates and printing from the plates. We’ll also create a beautiful journal incorporating your prints and paintings.

Monoprinting is a unique method of working in multiple images, incorporating the immediacy of painting with printmaking methods by repeating and reworking personal imagery and symbols. You’ll leave with lots of ideas and the potential of combining the various techniques and other methods into your printmaking and painting.
I’ll supply the OPEN paint, Gelli plates, and brushes and all related tools.

All levels welcome! Free literature and a free sample bag of Golden products!
