VISUAL ARTS SUTDIO
The art of printmaking presents myriad methods. Intaglio, relief, collagraph and lithograph are a few. After a collection of prints is created on fine archival paper, whether landscape, still life or abstract, the prints will be enhanced with application of clear gesso (marble dust with acrylic medium), which gives a “tooth” to the surface of the print, yet allows the color to show through. This sandy surface is perfect for additions of soft pastel to enhance the print. Students will work from their photographs, their imaginations, or they may let the tools (rollers, combs, scrapers, stencils) build the print.
