I teach a workshop called "Monoprint Collage" in which we explore gel plate printing techniques along with collage. For this spring's edition of Monoprint Collage, in Santa Fe, I will be including some deli paper transfer techniques. The video below shows just one of the fun ways you can use deli paper as a printing plate and transfer paper.
Here are a few sketchbook pages I have done at my kitchen table, with "dry" materials: tempera sticks, gel pens, paint markers, crayons, and collage with a glue stick. Here is my Kitchen Table Art Supply List.
Due to a cancellation, there is one spot open in my Big Fat Art Weekend in Stowe, VT, coming up November 9 - 11. What is Big Fat Art?
Big Fat Art is a state of mind rather than a specific kind of art. It is all about loosening up and getting past the thinking/evaluating zone and into the creative spontaneous one, where you can be freely expressive. Ditch the inhibitions, relax, and have fun playing with paint! Read more here.
Disclaimer: it is easier said than done, getting out of the stuck place and into a freedom of expression. In Big Fat Art we do specific exercises - such as speed-painting, five-minute painting, painting to a recipe or formula (six of these, one of those type of thing) - that keep us moving forward, and give us tools for getting, and staying, un-stuck.
