On Sunday afternoon, February 22, join us at Cafe UTEC to work with local artist Maxine Farkas and learn how to create your own monoprints without a press! Use inexpensive supplies from the grocery and hardware store to create exciting one of a kind art prints. In this workshop we will cover the basics, how to make a gelatin printing plate from unflavored knox gelatin and the various kinds of mark making tools you can find at any grocery or hardware store. Once we have covered the basics it is time to play! Wear clothes you don't mind getting paint on and plan on getting paint all over your hands!
Maxine Farkas is an artist who started playing with gelatin 15 years ago and never stopped!
Cafe UTEC will be closed during the workshop, so food will not be available for purchase. Light snacks will be provided, though!.
Spots are limited, so reserve yours today! The $25 workshop fee is due upon advance registration, so that we know how many participants to expect. The $15 materials fee can be paid upon registration or by cash/check/card on the 22nd.
When & Where
UTEC's mission is to ignite and nurture the ambition of our most disconnected young people to trade violence and poverty for social and economic success. UTEC was founded in 1999 by young people driven to develop their own teen center in response to gang violence. Today, UTEC’s nationally recognized model begins with intensive street outreach and gang peacemaking, reaching our most disconnected youth “where they’re at.” UTEC engages youth through workforce training in social enterprises, alternative education, and intensive case management. Social justice and civic engagement are embedded throughout programming, with special emphasis in our organizing and policymaking work.
