Printmaking Class

Mono prints and Collagraphs

We had a lot of fun experimenting with printmaking in this summer class. 

FIRST we made small collagraph plates to experiment with our recyclables to see what and how things would print.

Some things were really successful -like cereal box cardboard was great! Some things did not print well at all - like designs in hot glue were a disappointment... 

SECOND we made larger collagraph plates with our newfound knowledge and created a composition and printed at least 4 copies. We learned how to sign and number our prints like a printmaker.

 THIRD, we painted on foil and drew with Q-tips and pulled mono prints!

 FOURTH, we designed and created our own stamps and stamped them on a watercolor background!
