Discover a whole new world of artistic possibility when you remove the boundaries of the canvas or substrate and string your pieces together like words in a sentence. We will make individual prints using the gel plate*, hand-carved foam plates, and OPEN acrylic paints on Masa paper**. Each print is a part of a whole, not a whole image, and you can mix and match to your delight! You will make many prints in order to generate a plethora of possibilities when it comes to putting them together.
