Term 1 LOOK THINK PROJECT Workshops at CPAC — ages 10-14

February 15 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


LOOK THINK PROJECT will explore the fundamentals of printmaking in a skills based series of workshops lead by an experienced art facilitator. Over the course of five weeks the students shall complete three projects. Each week’s class will begin with a group discussion supported by works on display and/or reference images and conclude with a round table discussion and sharing of work. All materials will be supplied. Class numbers will be capped at 15 to provide the most appropriate environment for creative learning.


Weeks 1 & 2 | Lino Printing
The students shall be shown examples of Lino work and have the carving and printing processes demonstrated before designing and producing their own work. The final images from these workshops will be a line based image and a hand coloured print.

Weeks 3 & 4 | Stencilling
In this pair of workshops the students shall look at street art and produce a graphically based image. The students shall also explore block printing and the process of printing multiple colours. In order to do this the students will be taught print registration, colour overlay and depth perception.

Week 5 | Mono Printing
For the final workshop the students will engage with the immediate process of mono printing. The students will be shown how to apply a graphic and linear engagement to the ink and pull the print to produce a chosen image.
