Week 3:  We are going to start the next unit which is Printmaking.  Printmaking is the process of making artworks by printing, normally on paper. Except in the case of monotyping, the process is capable of producing multiples of the same piece, which is called a print. Each piece is not a copy but an original since it is not a reproduction of another work of art and is technically known as an impression. Painting or drawing, on the other hand, create a unique original piece of artwork. Prints are created from a single original surface, known technically as a matrix.  For the first week, we are going to make a monoprint using crayons.


Week 4:  This week we are going to use sixteen different leaf stencils to make monoprints on paper.  


Week 5:  This week we are going to use flowers - different colors and shapes in creating our monoprints.
