Gelli prints. Please stroll through these photos to get a sense of the process that happened in our free family art night. Gelli prints happen to be one of my favorite art processes. With squirting paint on each plate, color mixing, taking tools to create visual texture, using other tools to take paint away for relief, there is no wrong way to play. .
I was first introduced to Gelli printmaking at a National Arts Education Association conference about 4 years ago, and immediately was intrigued and excited for an open ended process-based art supply. These are used from our toddlers to adults for their versatility. And to think we didn't even introduce stencils, nature, or paper cut outs for playing with negative space! . #gelliplate#gelliprint#notpaidtosaythis#downtownnovato#creatingleadersoneartworkatatime#artteacher#studio4art#familyart#artstudio#kidscrafts101
