Smack and Smash Prints in Zoomland: Stencils and Rubber stamps!
Do you have a desire to make images that don’t move? Sick of looking at the world through wiggly zoom-grid? Still love images, love the excitement of using color and line and paper? In this class you will learn the simple process of making stencil “prints” by using a plastic sheet, a cutting blade, a few colors and stenciling brushes, and a sheet of beautiful paper. That’s it – the rest is up to you. Join us to slow down, take the time to create a line with a knife and transform it into blushes of color with a brush – work slowly. Stenciling is easy and not just for making wall decor (though that would be fun too!). Explore stencils and surprise yourself and your family with their sophistication. As the saying goes, “You can’t make a silkscreen without making a stencil!” Without acids or presses, this print class takes it right back to the basics – cut, mix, brush, print!
