Alternative Printmaking Methods: Collagraphs in the Kitchen
by Elizabeth Schneider will be offered live through zoom on
Monday, August 3, 2020 at 3pm.

Elizabeth Schneider, who grew up in Walden, now teaches at Kutztown (PA) University. She explains, “A collagraph is made by building up an image on a plate surface with glue and other materials, thereby creating recessed areas where ink, chalk, pencil, pastel, charcoal, or crayon rubbings are retained to produce an image transferred to paper.”
To get ready for the class, gather what materials you can find as suggested above, plus scissors or linocut tools, a roller if possible, and cardboard or a cereal or cracker box, or plastic plate surface.
Schneider will demonstrate how a collagraph is made. Then, it’s your turn to try it
