Using block printing ink and gelatin plates, participants will make beautiful botanical prints full of detail and color. Prints are suitable for framing in sets (first print and ghost print) and can be used as notecards or textured paper in further art projects. This is a fun, experimental, and iterative process with a lot of spontaneity and unexpected outcomes that lead to beautiful results.

Bay Area artist Erin McCluskey Wheeler is known for her bright tropical-colored works that employ a meticulous assemblage of found papers often bound together with looping brushstrokes. With both an abstract and graphic style, Wheeler's works are sometimes symbolic or whimsical, and play with ideas of nostalgia and visual memories in a narrative context. Erin both sources found materials and creates her own painted paper collage material to create densely layered paintings full of light and space.

Wheeler has a BA in studio art, and a BA in art history from Beloit College, and an MFA in writing from California College of the Arts. Erin is represented by Jen Tough Gallery in Benicia, California and her paintings have been licensed through West Elm,  Minted, and Image Conscious Fine Art Publications. She is a member of the El Cerrito Art Association and beginning in November 2018, she will be the Artist in Residence at the El Cerrito Recycling Center. Erin teaches art classes with the Center for Community Arts in Walnut Creek and assists with public programs and events at the UC Botanical Garden.
