Coinciding with the large-scale mixed media work of Jackie Reeves, a two-day workshop explored methods of transferring drawings to gelatin plates. A class of four artists, Emilie, Stephanie, Amy, and Petrina, used ball point pens and other oil resist methods to emboss paper, make crayon rubbings, and create collagraphs which they printed as a series.

Here are examples of work prepared for transfer, back painted gelatin plates, and final prints. Several examples are mixed media collages on Yupo paper.
