The first group of year 7 students that drew various plants in the Cabra Dominican Sisters Peace Garden have produced Intaglio prints of dry point etchings they created. They all teamed these prints with written diary entries of their experience using green ink and calligraphy pens. The students all loved the immediate effect of printing using the intaglio process and were amazed at the results. They also were quite interested in the technique of using calligraphy pens and some commented that “it was a lot easier than what I thought it was going to be”.
