Come explore monoprinting on a gel plate and learn how to incorporate your unique prints into your artwork. 


The first time I used a gel plate, I was amazed at what I made. When you place paint on a gel plate, you have to let go of any expectation. The gel plate has taught me how to be looser in my art and how to enjoy the process, not just the outcome.  I can’t wait to show you how gel printing can enhance your artwork, no matter what your style is.
