VIRTUAL ART WORKSHOP – POTATO PRINTED MANDALA: WCSU’s Department of Art Virtual Art Workshop Series: Potato Print: printed mandala with Karin Mansberg. NEW DATE!

Come join us from 1 to 3 p.m. for an alumna-led virtual art workshop where we will make stamps out of potatoes and create mandala prints and other patterns (on paper or fabric). The marks you print can be as simple as a circle, a semi-circle, or more complex ones. The emphasis is on process and experimentation with printed pattern and color. All skill levels are welcome from beginner to advanced. The Zoom link to the workshop will be provided with registration. Be creative! Grab some potatoes and let’s print!
