Workshop: Printing with Leaves and Found Materials

July 31 - August 31

Free

Join artist/printmaker Susan Rood as she demonstrates how to use leaves, found materials, paint and paper to create art. Fun for all ages but the very young will probably need some help.

Materials List [download list]

Leaves with obvious, raised veins are best. Please use care when gathering. Cut or break off gently, don’t pull. Watch out for poison ivy. (Leaves of three = leave them be!) Look for different sizes and shapes. Enjoy the search.

Paint Brushes of various sizes or sponge brush

Paper towels (if you can get them!) or some other absorbent materials

Water container

Paper for printing on: could be plain computer paper, card stock, construction paper, blank index cards, watercolor paper. An assortment of different kinds and sizes would be best.
