Color, form and texture, escape the monochromatic winter landscape palette! I will be teaching a 2 hour free "sampler" drop in introductory class on gelli plate printing on Sunday Feb 5 from 12:30 to 2:30 at the Christina Lake Welcome Center. Get into using color and layers with a variety of materials and techniques. This is the perfect medium to explore your artistic side and just have fun getting involved in the process of playing with paint and paper The prints can be used for notecards or art journals or whatever your hearts desire. This is an adult class, I will be doing children's classes at a different time.
The days are getting longer and the brighter colors are my favorites this week. I have been making earrings and pendants with beads I made after an autumn trip to the southwest. Even though there is a blanket of snow, I can envision the smell of the earth and spring bulbs nudging their way toward the light.
