Monotype Printing using a Gelli Plate
Instructor: Janet Trierweiler
Experimenting with Gelli Plate monotypes can add a fun and exciting new dimension to your painting practice. Working in layers, students will learn to work with mark-making, stencils, masking and making creative tools out of common household items. Learn how to use the right paper to get the effects you desire. Water-based ink, Golden Open Acrylics or fluid acrylics can be used with the Gelli Plates. Short supply list.
When: Saturday, 6/10
Time: 12:30pm - 5:30pm
Instructor: Fran Vail
The wonderful world of birds - an amazing and plentiful subject! Their independence and miracle of flight right before our eyes can often be overlooked – but don’t! We’ll start by learning to sketch them – a contour common to most species. Then, Fran will demonstrate and teach how to mix colors and “let your brush do the work” to build your skills. (Lots to learn – so please note that the painting demo will begin at noon!)
When: Sunday, 7/9
Sunlight & Shadows- Plein Air Painting Workshop

Instructor: Noted teacher/painter Thomas Trausch
Two Saturdays - Attend one or both!
“En Plein Air – There is no better way to learn about color, value and light than to paint from life, “en plein air”. This workshop will benefit ALL of your painting as well. You will learn to observe and make decisions in a timely manner. As we edit nature, we decide what to emphasize and what to leave out. Painting with fellow artists is an opportunity to grow, learn, and be inspired by others and the world around us. We’ll meet in the North Shore Art League studio and plan our days! ALL MEDIUMS WELCOME! Thomas will contact you after you register to discuss your specific paint supplies needed.
