We are starting off the new year in Middle School art with a cycle on printmaking. The students will be choosing a printmaking technique to form their own project around. We have been learning about woodcuts, collographs, monoprints, screenprints, image transfers, and mixed media prints. They will be writing a short proposal on what technique (or combination of techniques) they plan to use, what imagery, and what artists have influenced them.
Here are some images from our first day back as the students experimented with basic relief printing techniques.
