Using a gel plate is a fun and easy way to create one-of-a-kind prints that can be beautiful collage papers or stand on their own. Participants will learn how to pull prints with different papers and paints and by using found objects, stamps, stencils, and natural elements. Participants will create multiple prints during the workshop.
An Alexandria-based artist, Eileen O’Brien enjoys breaking plates and cutting glass for her mosaic arts and crafts and recycling materials as she creates layers and textures in her mixed-media and gel print art. Her artwork has shown in many galleries in the DMV, including Falls Church Arts, the Van Landingham Gallery in the Torpedo Factory, and the fabulous Palette 22 restaurant in Arlington. She is also a long-term member of the Del Ray Artisans and has taught gel print workshops there and at a number of venues, including Art Happens on Tarboro in Wilson, NC, Made in ALX in North Old Town Alexandria, and the Goodwin House in Falls Church.
