Studio Art: Gelli Printing

In Studio Art we are beginning our printmaking unit with Gelli mono-printing.  We'll begin by creating interesting stencils to use- they can be random organic or geometric shapes or more specific imagery.

We will then create a series of 2 mono-prints that relate to each other, in the art world this is called a diptych.  Their are a number of different techniques and methods but each student should create 2 prints for Tuesday using their stencils.

After creating our first 2 monoprints using stencils in Studio Art class  we will take monoprinting to the next level by adding drawing and layer masks.
You can draw first then print over it like the example above and below using a photograph or you can layer prints like the examples below but I'd suggest experimenting with prints before making a final print.
