Lyric Prints

As part of the year 8 specialist 2D semester, they explore a range of art methods such as printmaking. This group explored reduction lino printing with the theme of song lyrics. They learnt about creating an emboss, then printing with a colour and finally adding the ‘key’, which is the black. Reducing their prints was a difficult method and also lining these up when printing was problematic. What refined prints these students have created with such complex imagery.

Fungi Etchings

As part of a year 8 class’ printmaking unit, the students learnt about Intaglio Dry point etching and printing. They researched a fungi, and investigated information including the toxicity, habitat, scientific name etc. They then created their own etchings that were printed in blue. Below are a few of the students prints.

Human Nature

For the past few weeks a class of year 8 students have been exploring the paper cut work by Elsa Mora and her original approach to combining imagery of biological with flora and fauna. The students interpreted this by creating their own merged imagery of anatomical body parts or living beings with that of flora. These were then translated through the method of lino carving and printing. The following artwork was made by one of the students who merged ideas of vegetable leaves with that of rabbit ears.

Printmaking Methods: Intaglio

The group of year 10 Visual Art students are currently exploring printmaking methods in their Visual Study this term. They experimented with techniques of the Intaglio Dry-Point etching method and printed their own Forest snapshots. These etchings were completed in a double lesson and they used a variety of methods materials to add depth their work, including; sandpaper, masking tape, etching scribes and scalpels. This process allowed students to create depth to their etching by ‘incising’ grooves for the ink to seep into the acetate sheets. What wonderful explorations in such a short period of time.
