Come and enjoy Culture days with Gallery member Jillian Roos – Markowitz. Choose from one of the three afternoon experiences, or plan to come and enjoy all of the workshops. All supplies provided by the Gallery.
1 – 2 p.m. – Intuitive Drawing
Intuitive drawings come from deep within us. Using pieces of wood ,flowers, a stone to stimulate our minds, the lines and marks of the object we draw with closed eyes to get us to our creative side of the brain. Magical things will happen!
2:30 – 3:30 p.m. – Mono Printing
Mono Printing, using the intuitive side of our brain and working on a small plexiglass plate we use Water colour crayons that take us on a journey through colour line and shape, printed on paper the design is released, the printed effect being quite a surprise once the printing Angels take over!
4 – 5 p.m. – Lino block printing
Printing with Lino blocks using special knives that cut easily through the soft Lino, we think in terms of shape,geometric shapes to create an abstract design. Printing Ink in glorious colours are used to print the designs, one colour two colours, lets enjoy the colours of the Rainbow!
