Depicting Nature: Monotypes with Gelatin Plates

Sunday, October 22, 10:30 AM
4:30 PM

The changing seasons reminds us of nature's many moods. The artist Charles Burchfield understood this well and chose to explore it in his many works focusing on a weather theme. View the museum's exhibition, Charles Burchfield: Weather Event, and create their own observations in a printmaking studio experience based on Burchfield's symbols, patterns and color palette. Manipulating water base media on a gelatin plate surface, students will learn how to evoke those weather themed emotions with layering, texturing, painting, subtracting and collaging. Simple materials will yield surprising results as we explore the sounds and sights of nature's elements such as clouds, trees, leaves, sun/moon and wind-all within a print experience.


$35 material fee is payable to the instructor.
