Mixed Media Workshop: COLLAGE EXPLORATIONS with Gelli Prints with Christine Sauer Appropriate for ages 14 thru adults Please join New Orleans’ artist Christine Sauer for this engaging mixed media workshop where we’ll explore the intersection of collage, monoprinting and painting. We'll explore collage art using monoprints (one-of-a kind print) printed on Gelli Plates with Golden Open acrylics. Participants will discover
inventive ways to use stencils, stamps, masks and texture tools to create layered, unexpected combinations. The focus will be on exploring painterly prints, layered prints, and printed collages using a variety of papers and fabrics.

You’ll then create an abstract collage using your prints plus acrylic paints, on a 9x12” wood cradled panel. You will have plenty of papers left to take home for other projects plus loads of inspiration. The artist will guide you through the process with many examples and lots of helpful tips and techniques. Printing on Gelli Plates is versatile and exciting. GOLDEN Open acrylics are a slow drying paint that allows for a longer “open” or working time than regular acrylics. They are perfect for this process. The workshop fee includes a Gelli Plate, cradled panel, all tools and materials needed including paint, brayers, stencils, palette paper, as well as paper and fabric for printing. *Please bring lunch, snacks and beverage. A ½ hour lunch break is scheduled but you may want to do a working lunch. You’ll also need an apron or old shirt to protect your clothing.
