REMEMBER, this month we will be meeting the 2nd Saturday on June 14th. Cat Monroy has some new techniques to explore using a gelli plate printing pad. Here is her supply list:
Let's welcome in summer! For the next meeting, please bring all your standard mixed media supplies (brushes, gesso, gel medium, etc.) that make you happy and creative along with the following supplies if you have all or some of them:
-one or two rubber stamps that depict summer-like designs and one ink pad (a favorite color), archival or permanent-stencil or two-washi tape-3 favorite acrylic paint colors (more if you like, but not necessary). If you have Golden transparent paint, bring a color or two. If not, there will be some there.-spray ink, like Dylusions-pretty papers to collage with-micron or pitt pen, black for sure, permanent ink (our members love to help newbies and share supplies, so don't stress over not having everything!). However, this is a hands on workshop.
We will be creating a summer collage with a few fun twists. A mixed media surface will be supplied for you. We will be learning how to use a Gelli plate, creating some texture for your collages. Be prepared for fun and surprises! If in doubt about what to bring, just think summer! Can a couple people bring a heat gun for drying projects?
We welcome and love to have new members as well as our seasoned troupe! Drop-in fee is $5.00 and membership is $36.00 prorated from September.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Our July meeting will also be the second Saturday on July 12th due to the holiday weekend. Please come! More details later...
