We set up a printing area. On one side the girls made mono prints and on the other they made their cardboard prints. Below you can see two students making their cardboard prints. Once again the students were either working on the subject of STRUCTURE or TEXTURE.
This is how this particular mono print came out. The student worked from her original drawing made on the field trip.
The cardboard prints gave some great abstract works. The shapes are interesting. I also thought the way each student took a completely different approach to the cardboard printing was very interesting.
These are some original drawings made on the field trip. They both depict the same scene however one student has used oil pastel and the other Biro. They have both shown a huge level of detail in their drawings. It is interesting to see these side by side since one deals with colour and the other purely with the forms. Working on the field trip in this way allowed us to gather a rich variety of data.
The mono prints proved to be very popular with the students. The instant satisfaction allowed them to enjoy their work immediately! This student worked from an image of a bicycle taken just outside the school.
Here we can see a variety of textures.
