LAKESIDE: Mono Silkscreen Aged 12+
Nottingham Lakeside Arts
University Park, Nottingham NG7 2RD
|Date & Time||Sunday 19th April
10.00am - 4.00pm
Coronavirus Update: Unfortunately, this course will not be going ahead, due to the safety of participants at this time [as of 17th March].
We're excited to run a new course for young people aged 12+ and adults alike at Lakeside, Nottingham. This is a great opportunity to learn mono silkscreen with your child, and is a fantastic way to build up a student portfolio for further art study.
Mono silkscreen is a great way to experiment with colour and mark making, to explore chance opportunities and produce spontaneous results.
Using water based crayons, painting ink directly onto screens and using stencil cut outs, you will be able to create your own unique prints. Either using abstract or drawn images, this technique is a fantastic introduction to a very popular print technique.
