black and white and coloured prints

Printmaking and drawing was our focus this term, each week our students learnt how to draw a different animal and from these drawings they would then make a printing plate, calligraphies and foam prints.
Basia and I provided two major printing days during the term so that each student had the opportunity to make four prints from each printing plate, signed and numbered like a professional printmaker.
We also included other styles of hand printing, such as handmade stamps of sea creatures that were collaged onto underwater scenes, our students also tried their hand at ink prints on paper, creating intuitive designs that blossomed in colour.
Favorite prints were selected by the students and mounted into a hand bound book that they proudly took home at the end of the term.
