All Occasion Greeting Cards with Dawn Dreibus

December 12th 

1:00-4:00pm

Supply fee included in cost

Learn an interesting and fun technique for making monoprints using a gelatin plate. This is a fun way to make greeting cards, art and an interesting background for painting images onto and making collages. Monoprinting is a form of painting that has images and lines that can only be made once.

Students will take home at least 5 greeting cards and two pieces suitable for framing or using in other work. 

Making monoprints is a recent "addiction" for me. I discovered it by accident by viewing a journaling tutorial on a blog that I like. I have been having great fun making cards and other art work with these prints.
