PLATTSBURGH — ROTA art gallery will host two workshops to creating hand prints in August.
The first workshop, Meditative and Improvisational Handprinting Workshop will be held at the ROTA Gallery at 50 Margaret St. on August 11, from 10 a.m. to noon and the Eco-friendly Handprinting Relief Workshop will be held August 26 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Artist Nadia Korths will teach how to create 6 to 15 pieces on rice paper. No press nor experience needed. Using richly colored non-toxic inks, create improvised works using found/meaningful objects. Process learned in minutes. Recycle styrofoam into printing plates.
Korths' prints, mostly hand printed styrofoam reliefs, are described as improvisational reflections of date and place created as defined by the reuse and transformation of everyday and discarded objects.
The works can be easily duplicated at home. Create new colors from the blending of primary colors. Enjoy a trust-the-process, experimental atmosphere.
The course cost $20 and $10 for materials fee.
