Printmaking and Mobiles in the Maker’s Studio

In Printmaking class with Onnie S., members recently created colorful mobiles made with collaged monotype prints on cardboard.

Onnie says, “At the WAE Center, we work to help people explore their talents and abilities in a physical and intellectual way; we also don’t like to waste anything.”

In that context, his class made colorful monoprints on Gelli plates while learning the principles of color mixing and design. The monoprints that would not be used for member’s portfolios were collected to create collages on corrugated cardboard. Members used wire, colorful art yarns and pieces cut up from the collages to make the colorful and whimsical mobiles which now hang by the windows found in the Maker’s studio.
