Artist's Proof:
Senior Printmaking
Grades 7 & 8

In your classroom

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Art is a powerful form of communication, and prints are a great example of artists creatively and colourfully conveying a message. Students will work in pairs to make an edition of prints that share their own messages with the world. Starting with a brief introduction to the history of printmaking, students spend the rest of the day drawing text- and image-based designs, mixing colours and making an edition of thought-provoking prints.

Grade 7 students will make prints with linoleum blocks on paper.

Grade 8 students will screen print on fabric. Students are welcome to bring t-shirts or tote bags to screen on. Oakville Galleries can also supply fabric patches for this purpose.

  • Full day

  • $14/student ($350 minimum)
