During this half-day workshop participants will create multicolored images by putting a twist on traditional printmaking methods! Students will substitute printmaking ink for watercolor palettes mixed with transparent base. By pushing the watercolor through a stencil, colors will combine, creating a range of tones and hues. After a day with Virginia, participants will be able to take their knowledge beyond our studio and recreate this method at home. Open to ages 14 and older.
In this workshop, participants will learn the process of reduction screen printing which is a great technique to learn for those who want to be able to print at home. No dark room required! Enjoy the day in our print studio as you learn how to use your screen, drawing fluid, screen filler, and different types of inks.
All tools and materials are provided. Participants will leave with their own 5 color print! Please bring a lunch or snacks as this is an all-day workshop. Open to ages 12 and older.

In this workshop, Virginia will lead an exploration in the process of using different materials to create unique designs that will be used for screen-printing. Participants will experiment with material such as watercolor, paint pens, various types of inks, bleach, and even mascara! This process allows for a free-flowing playful environment which is great for beginners and experienced printers alike. If you've ever been interested in the process of screen printing but haven't had the time or materials to go for it, this workshop is for you.
Attendees will leave with a basic knowledge of screen printing, and several of their own printed designs. We encourage you to take the Monotype Workshop on Saturday, Feb. 3rd as a precursor to this workshop, but it is not required.
All tools and materials are provided. Participants are also welcome to bring any fabric that they would like to print such as t-shirts, aprons, pillowcases, or tote bags. Please bring a lunch or snacks as this is an all-day workshop. Open to ages 14 and older.
This workshop is designed for anyone who has an interest in printmaking and wants to learn more. Participants will learn how to use different ink viscosities to create interesting monotype prints and will leave with several original art pieces. As a bonus, you can bring your completed prints back to use as backgrounds for Virginia's Experimental Screen Printing workshop on the following Saturday!
Participants will learn how to:
- Operate the etching press without assistance
- Have a thorough understanding of studio equipment and tools
- Blend/mix a palette of inks to desired consistency
- Plan a composition on the printing matrix using learned fundamentals
- Effectively work on several monotypes at a time
- Demonstrate numerous ink/mordant or physical effects in monotypes
- Produce subjective imagery in multiple layer formats
The opening will be First Friday in the Paseo! There will be complimentary wine, live music by local band Judith, and a short story discussion group led by librarian Leanne Brooks.
The Yellow Wallpaper Art Show at The Paseo Plunge will showcase art that features women dealing courageously with mental illnesses, learning to trust their own inner voice despite louder (and usually male) voices of authority.
The holidays and (maybe colder weather?) are upon us!
Come hangout and see all the latest pieces I have been working on the past few months. There will be prints, paintings, shirts/sweatshirts, etc.. You may even find a last minute Christmas gift ;)
Also included will be drinks, snacks, music, a miniature Christmas tree, and a funky fresh raffle prize.
The year is coming to a close, so we're going out strong with an enormous artist showcase! Join us on the 2nd Friday Art Walk for REBEL REBEL, a one-night exhibition featuring fine art, performances, and vendors from Oklahoma and nationwide! Everyone is invited to come out, party and enjoy an extraordinary exhibition by some exceptional artists!
