6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Gelatin monoprinting is an easy, uncomplicated, and fun way to explore printmaking without a press. Charlotte-based artist Laurie Smithwick will cover the basics of printing with a gelatin plate (rolling ink, pulling a print, and pulling a ghost print). You’ll then use handmade stencils, found materials, and layering to create unique geometric and abstract prints. You’ll create at least one final work of art to take home.
No previous painting or printmaking experience is necessary.
Adults and teenagers are welcome. All materials are provided.
McColl Center Members: $50
