Carmel Murphys 5th/ 6th class with Artist Jane Groves
Session 5… More Transformations, mark making and print.
I always see winter as a great opportunity to examine the beauty of decay in the ark of seasonal transformation.Today I bought in a selection of seed heads,a discarded birds nest, feathers, cones and some fascinating bird skulls for the children to draw from.I encouraged the class to be inspired by the expressive mark making of the last session and explained that because we would develop these ideas into prints, that we would use marks rather than shading techniques
we began by drawing from the stimuli and then I demonstrated how a drawing could be made onto foam board and then printed using rollers and water based printing ink.
The children worked steadily and transformed their drawings into some beautiful prints
