Drawing from the Right Side of the Brain Workshop

November 26, 9am-3pm

instructor Robert Placky

Students will explore unusual ways to draw and most importantly unusual ways to think; upside down, negative space and patterns will explore how we process information.

Upcoming Workshops

Gelli Plate Monoprinting Workshop

December 4 (4 hours) 1-5 pm

Instructor: Ingrid Booz Morejohn

Art Alliance Art Center

818 Pike Street, Lemont, PA 16851

Explore subtractive and additive monoprinting using a gelatin plate as a matrix in this 4-hour workshop. No previous printmaking experience is necessary with this fun, explorative, versatile and simple technique that doesn’t require a printing press – results are immediate and addictive. During this workshop you will produce a number of unique prints that can be used for journaling, collaging, book-binding and other mixed media projects or as stand-alone works of art, perfect for Christmas gift giving. You can also learn how to easily create gift tags or wrapping paper.

$40 plus a $10 materials fee

To sign up please call the Art Alliance at 814-234-2740 or stop by the office at 824 Pike Street Lemont, PA, at the back of the Gallery Shop. 

 

Drypoint Printmaking Workshop

December 6 (4 hours) 1-5 pm

Instructor: Ingrid Booz Morejohn

Art Alliance Art Center

818 Pike Street, Lemont, PA 16851

Learn all the techniques of traditional drypoint engraving but use instead a cheap and easily accessible material – simple recycled milk and juice Tetrapak containers. With these you can feel free to experiment and make ‘mistakes’ without feeling you have wasted expensive materials like a copper or zinc plate. The idiosyncrasies of the material (folds, creases etc.) only lend character to the final prints. You will also learn some aspects of relief printing as well as collagraph printing where layers are peeled away and inked. Each student will print a limited series of relief and intaglio inked prints.

$40 plus a $10 materials fee

To sign up please call the Art Alliance at 814-234-2740 or stop by the office at 824 Pike Street Lemont, PA, at the back of the Gallery Shop.
