I’ve started out every year with printmaking for the past few years now. It involves paint/ink, making a mess and the potential to learn a new method of working and some new vocabulary. We talk about mono printing, relief printing, and intaglio printing along with learning such words as, carve, brayer, plate, Plexiglas, ink, etc.
We start with mono printing
Here the students is applying the ink/paint.
Next is using the brayer to roll the ink out evenly
Here the student is just making a quick scribble because I’m taking pictures to show the various steps the student has to go through for the making of a mono print
In this step the paper is being laid gently down on plate with the design.
Then the pulling of the print.
Here’s the final piece. It goes pretty quick and the students have to take turns going around the table.
This is a short vid of a a young student making a mono-print.
