Session 8 – 13th of May – Our last session of PRINT MAKING
I have decided that for our last session of art making we could re-visit some of the printing processes: two different techniques combined! We used mounting board pieces again to build a `collage` – type image but this time from soft foam shapes and cut outs. These were glued onto the mounting board and dried during lunch break – drying easily and quickly!
Once the various shapes were dry and firmly glued to create the base of images we used large masonry nails to carve and `draw` details into the foam, making a combination of relief and intaglio printing processes.
It was great fun I think and great success – re-visiting techniques and having the time and resources to try out processes again is such a great experience for everyone involved. These materials also allow for printing multiples, using the plates as stamps. Based on the multiples and colour variations – some interesting works were created.
A great part of our session was spent with discussions, reflections on the project – I will include these in our last posting which will focus on evaluation, documentation and `looking and responding`.
