Watercolor & Collage with Molly

Instructor: Molly Atryzek
Adult/Teen
Thursday, January 23rd
6 – 8:30 pm | 2D Studio

Experiment with a variety of water color techniques by creating hand painted paper that you will later use to create a collage. Create one large scale, or a series of small scale collages. Even turn them into one of a kind greeting cards. 


Resist, Resist, Resist!

Instructor: Ann Forbush

January 25, 2020
10 am – 3 pm
Adult / Teen Workshop

This one-day workshop focuses on making monotypes that sparkle with clean whites created by using “resists”. We will explore the application of beeswax, rubber and oil based media that serve to shield the paper’s surface from our water based Akua inks. The day will begin with a printing demonstration then students will make their own images incorporating the resist techniques.

Mid-day, we’ll break for lunch (brown bag) and the session will end by sharing our results and observations about this unique, mixed media approach to printmaking. All materials provided except paper.
