Connect & Create: Gel Plate Image Transfer Prints

March 5, 2024 5:30PM to 7:00PM
LUAG Main Gallery
Image of two prints created by a student in the Art and Climate Change class. One print shows text over a multicolored background and the other shows a self-portrait over dark colored background.

Join us for a fun and experimental workshop to create your own image transfer prints that make a statement about climate change. Learn how to create unique and dynamic monoprints to use in your journal, mixed media artwork, or as a standalone work. All materials will be provided and no experience necessary.

Advance registration is encouraged.

Connect & Create workshops offer a brief exploration and creative conversation around a work of art from the LUAG collection, followed by a hands-on activity and/or creative response led by a local teaching artist or student educator.

Victoria Beck is a Lehigh Valley based artist whose lifelong interest in drawing led her to pursue a career in art and illustration. In 2016 she received her BFA from Kutztown University. It was there that she discovered a love of printmaking, using both traditional and experimental techniques to create imagery. Her work can be described as largely figural - both literal and imaginative. These figures can be seen integrated within botanical motifs and patterns found in nature. Currently she is director of LivingStone Press (Emmaus, PA), where she can be found teaching workshops and collaborating with artists to produce prints.
