Art Workshop: Gelatin Printmaking for Kids + Teens

Saturday, May 2, 2020
10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Gelatin monoprinting is an easy, uncomplicated, and fun way to explore printmaking without a press. Charlotte-based artist Laurie Smithwick will teach you the basics of printing with a gelatin plate, including rolling ink, pulling a print, and pulling a ghost print. You’ll use handmade stencils, found materials, and layering to create unique geometric and abstract prints that you can take home.

Teens are welcome and all materials are provided.

McColl Center Members: $50
Non-members: $55
