Using garden plants and simple materials, students will explore the possibilities of organic and geometric compositions to create a series of monotypes on the museum’s large etching press. Basic printmaking lessons such as registering paper, mixing colors, and using the press will be covered. All materials in this class are non-toxic.
Some supplies provided, but students will need:
- 9” x 12” hot-press watercolor paper, 140 lbs, 20 sheets
- fresh leaves, vines, or flowers to use in prints (thin and flexible plants like ferns, nandina or hydrangea work better than those with woody stems or stiff, thick leaves)
