We continued our `experiments` on the 13th of March – our fourth session at the school!
The COLLOGRAPH Process:
- Was `voted` by the children as the most enjoyable and interesting so far!
- Continued with Collograph Printing – layering textured collages on strong card plates recycled and found materials. These plates then are inked and printed on white paper.
- Used materials now also collected by the children or found in the class room/storage space.
- Further explored various visualizations of the themes and ideas previously discussed… Building on the previous session`s experiences, most images now were simplified and stronger, clearer in texture and form. Also it seemed that everyone was more careful and considerate with the colours and the amount of ink used!!:)
Re-visiting a printing technique that we tried at the last session proved to be a great idea: offering to consider process and its effect on outcome! It brought more concentration and choices of strong images. WELL DONE to everyone in the class – children and teachers! – on their beautiful work!!
