Youth Gelli Plate Print Making Workshop

May 8 @ 3:40 pm - 4:40 pm

Learn how to create colorful, multi-layered, textural prints with Gelli plates!

Space is limited. Registration is required.

This workshop is intended for ages 10+. Children 10 and over may attend unaccompanied by a caregiver.

In this workshop, artist Anastasia Zielinski will guide students through the process of making Gelli plate monotype prints. We will explore the themes of this year’s A Novel Idea Youth Edition No Matter the Distance and use the visual imagery from the story to create unique, multi-layered, textural prints. (Familiarity with the book is not required to attend the workshop – come make art with us!)

Monotype printmaking is a special form of the medium where the artist creates one print, instead of multiples. It is a simple, fun process that encourages experimentation. Gelli plates allow artists to create layered prints using various textures, colors, and magazine images. See image below as an example.

Anastasia Zielinski is a multidisciplinary artist and arts educator. Her practice centers around painting, fiber-based collage, and installation art. She received her BFA with a minor in art history from Pratt institute (Brooklyn, NY 2005).
