Fun with Gel Plates, ages 6 - 8

Fun with Gel Plates, ages 6 - 8

Sunday, July 17, 1-3pm

Instructor: Wendy Ricks


Beginning and experienced gel paint printers will have fun painting designs and learning to layer, a very important element in painting that shows depth of field. Students will learn the types of layers that produce the most interesting and desired backgrounds. Emphasis will also be placed on mixing primary colors for use of secondary colors.

Gel printing plates have a sensitive surface, somewhat of the consistency of very firm Jello. Paint is used to draw on the plate or rolled out with a brayer to cover any portion of the plate. It is designed to capture texture and details without the use of a press and is very similar to mono printing and printmaking. Gel plates are reusable and clean up with just a little water.

Wendy Ricks is MarinMOCA’s Family Day Manager and art teacher for MarinMOCA’s Enrichment Program for the Novato School District.
