Introduction to Paper Marbling with Joyce Gitter

Saturday, June 3:  1-4:30 pm

Learn the technique of marbling on paper to produce beautiful old world patterns or your own freestyle designs. We will use acrylic paints floated on a carrageenan bath, then manipulate the paints with various tools to produce designs. Paper will be laid on the bath, resulting in a one-of-a-kind print. You will have time to practice the techniques learned and to do your own experimentation. You will leave with several pieces of marbled beauty for your artistic endeavors. Participants should bring an old hand towel, roll of paper towel and apron to protect clothing. There is an additional fee of $45 payable to the instructor on the day of class to cover her cost of paints, carrageenan, alum, gall, papers, use of tools, an instruction booklet and resource list. This class is offered at a greatly reduced rate because of a generous donation from Claudette Lee-Roseland, who wanted to inspire all adults to create art.

A life-long paper addict, Joyce Gitter discovered mesmerizing marbled paper on a trip to Italy. That led to her first marbling class and another addiction. A retired pediatrician, kids have shown her that the best way to learn is through play, and she sees marbling as magical child’s play. She practices marbling magic in her home in Mequon, WI where she uses her marbled paper and fabric for cards, cartonnage boxes, journals and collage. She has taught classes in paper crafting, cartonnage and journal making.

Claudette Lee-Roseland Endowed Classes. These classes are offered at a greatly reduced rate to encourage adults to take the leap and begin experimenting in the arts. We welcome new students or students who are resuming their art journey to register and try out a new medium they have been on the fence about and have always wanted to try. This reduced rate is made possible by a generous donation from Claudette Lee- Roseland’s family on her behalf.
