Have you ever tried making mono prints on a geli printing plate? Prepare yourself for a fantastic time!
Just in time for the height of summer! We will use wildflowers and foliage to create a variety of art prints. Lots and lots of prints. Some will stand on their own, some will make great under layers for future projects. ALL MATERIALS PROVIDED. Students will go home with a bunch of art *and* an 8x10 geli plate and brayer to use on future projects on their own. Plan on going home with a lot of paper - some of it wet with paint (I'll have bags and envelopes, but this would be a good occasion to come with an empty trunk).
Location: Amanda Evanston Freund Studio and Gallery 1310A Chicago Ave, Evanston IL 60201
Space is limited to six students and is priced slightly higher to account for the extra materials. No place-holding reservations, please.
This purchase is non-refundable. Attendees who cannot attend are welcome to give or sell their slot to someone else, or, a 50% value store credit may be offered to those canceling more than 24 hours in advance.
- Wear paint-friendly clothing. Things get messy!
-Aim to arrive 5-10 minutes early. Class will start *on time*. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late will have difficulty catching up.
Is it okay if I'm a beginner?Absolutely. I only offer workshops that can accommodate a large range of experiences and skill sets. You do not need painting experience at all. That said, some of my students are professional artists. We all have something we can learn from each other.
Is it weird if I come alone?Not at all. In fact, I prefer you come in one or two at a time. Larger groups can often shift the focus and pace of the class. You'll have plenty of opportunities to chat and talk throughout the two hours, but I will keep you busy, so if you are not big on small talk, no worries, there's also no pressure to be chatty. You are here to make art! Please don't drag in your mom or your co-worker just because you don't want to try it out by yourself - they'll bring down the vibe. And you're a big girl. You can come solo. I promise!
What about kids?These classes take place in a working art studio. There are many items in here that are sharp, wet, and/or poisonous. For their safety, and my insurance guy’s sanity, I kindly request children stay out of the studio area unless specifically invited. Children are always welcome in the front gallery area, and there will be occasional children’s art workshops in the future. In the meantime, I'm happy to recommend any of the many places in Evanston already offering art courses for children. Thank you for understanding!
