Classes scheduled for 2023
Printmaking with a Gel Plate with Rob Anderson
December 2 CLASS IS FULL
December 16 SPACES STILL AVAILABLE
Fee: $45 (includes supplies) 10 am - 1 pm
In this 3-hour workshop participants create several monoprints and/or monotypes with a gel plate. Participants are encouraged to take both a planned and spontaneous approach while using a variety of materials and equipment. Texture plates, man-made found objects, or organic objects picked up from the natural world will be used to create texture and shape in the artwork. Geometric man-made object will also be used. Creating and utilizing paper masks and stencils is another method that will be explored. Foam is an inexpensive, easily cut material which can be used to quickly create a block for printing. Participants will create a block that may be used by itself or in combination with other printing methods. Both acrylic paint and ink are used on a variety of papers. The beauty of working with this approach is that it is non-threatening to people who might not see themselves as artists. They learn that there is no "right" or "wrong" way with the process. It is playful and creative with instant results.
Felting with Lynae Hanson
January 23 5:30-8:00 pm
Fee: $25 (felting kit & supplies included)
Lynae Hanson will lead students through a 2-hour dry wool felting session to create a small felted creature. We’ll cover tools, materials and techniques before getting started on our project. Class fees will cover all materials and each student will take home their own felting kit. If we don’t finish our creatures in 2 hours, we’ll schedule another session or students can finish on their own, at home.
Lynae is the Executive Director of Bismarck Art & Galleries Association and has been an artist, exploring different techniques and mediums, her whole life. She taught herself felting techniques by reading books, watching videos and practicing.
