Free watercolor, silkscreen demo

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012 | Posted by

Columbine Sky by Rohnert Park Artist Sara Bell/Simple Lines Studio

Sara Bell of Rohnert Park’s Simple Lines Studio offers a free Watercolor Crayons, Inks and Silkscreens, Oh My! demonstration from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9th at Riley Street Annex, 103 Maxwell Court, Santa Rosa.

This demonstration and the array of fall class offerings allow participants to explore the expressive possibilities available with the use of water-soluble crayons on silkscreen. Bell will help students understand the basics of making stencils, how to apply watercolor crayons to a screen, how to pull a screen print and create a small portfolio of images.

The classes are designed for teens and adults, “I want people to find their inner artist and be inspired to create. After that, I hope they will learn to love the process of silkscreen printing and take their new skills to the next level,” said Bell who earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Maryland Institute, College of Art.

“There is no correct way to use silk screening, just many ways to print. It’s fun to explore the possibilities,” she added.

Her fall class schedule starts on September 9th and runs until December 10th at various locations in Santa Rosa, Petaluma and Healdsburg. Prices range from $15 to $50 a class plus material fees. To view Bell’s work visit www.simplelinesstudio.com or http://www.facebook.com/Simple.Lines.Studio.

    Hi Sara,
    I have been searching for some info on what the best medium to use when transferring watercolor crayons from silk screen to paper. I have had minimal luck getting all the pigments transferred. I would love to take your class but actually I live in Ohio. Thanks for any information.
