Lino Printing

1st Year

Curious Creatures

 

Students created a series of lino prints exploring the art principles of line, value, texture, shape, colour, space and form.

Students experimented with drawing from primary objects, (blind, gesture, continuous, chalk), positive & negative shapes, using recycled material and exploring the techniques of chine-collé. This unit of learning was inspired by a gallery visit to put the theme into context. The learners curated an exhibition to showcase their work and wrote an artist statement.
