Visiting Artist Offers Tips to CHS Students

CHS students in Robert Raeihle’s Studio in Digitial Media Arts classes had the opportunity to create gel print artwork on Tuesday and Wednesday with guidance from an accomplished visitor.

Via the Boces Arts in Education program, illustrator and designer Moriah Ray visited Raeihle’s classes to discuss the Gelli Plate art technique.

The tutorial — which involves applying acrylic paint to gelatin plates and then transferring images, similar to how a printing press would function — fit in well with the Studio in Digital Media Arts coursework. The class generally focuses on skills with digital tools such as Adobe Photoshop, but the hands-on arts lesson similarly utilized layers to create art.
