Interactive Art Project: Monoprinting

Sponsored by Artist & Craftsman Supply

Corner of India and Date Street

Create a colorful piece of art at Mission Federal ArtWalk and take it home to enjoy! Our partners at Artist & Craftsman Supply will lead you in a monoprint technique using gel plates.

Choose from an array of water-based Speedball printing inks to create soft blends of color on the gel plate surface. By layering objects from nature such as greenery and feathers combined with various tools you will create a unique composition. A bold design is revealed on the initial print and then even more depth and intricacies appear on the second print, also known as the ‘ghost print’.interactive photo 4

You’ll create a diptych design on one sheet of artist grade paper such as rice paper or rag.

The result: A vibrant nature-inspired work of art! Come and connect with your inner artist at the interactive art pavilion.
