Session 6: Gel Plate Printing

For non artists and artists who want to try something new in self-expression. Participants are invited to attend one or more sessions, registering for each month individually.
Each workshop of a 6-session online offering will introduce a form of media with myriad possibilities for its use along with techniques and methods for participants to complete one or two small projects. You can follow along with Anthony as he demonstrates online or you can observe and take notes to work on projects later.
Content ideas can come from photographs, still life arrangements in your home or print ideas from books and magazines.
Online workshops may be extended into future face-to-face workshops. If you join all 6 online sessions, you will have materials and ideas for forging ahead on your own path to creative expression!

We would like to remind you the following zoom etiquette:

  • Please sign-in 2 to 3 minutes early. Late-shows are disruptive for the group and may not be able to join.
  • As a mutual courtesy, we do ask that all participants have their camera on. No one will be allowed without their camera on.
  • Be mindful of other participants.
