The Studios of Cocoa Beach is hosting Introduction to Printmaking with Glaucia Romano on Friday, October 13, from 6 to 8 pm. This workshop will explore several different techniques to create prints. We will start with foam, the progress to linoleum, and gelli plates.
Making prints does not necessarily involve creating multiple copies of the same artwork. In fact. Gelli is a (non-animal derived) gelatin-based plate used to make monoprints by stenciling, layering, and other almost “magical” techniques to create amazing artworks. Glaucia will provide Gelli plates, brayers, and a multitude of materials to explore and create fun and expressive artwork! Once you have the basics, you can use print making techniques to create abstract artwork, journal pages, greeting cards, printed
