2nd Year - Cardboard Prints
The 2nd Years had an introduction to relief printmaking using corrugated cardboard. They started by making some interior and exterior architectural drawings of their environment: of the art room, the school buildings and rooms at home. After choosing their favourite drawing the students broke it down into various shapes, attributing white, mid-tone or black to each of the shapes. They then transferred their design onto the corrugated card and cut away the white shapes, peeled back the mid-tone shapes to the lines of the corrugation and left the surface of the cardboard for the black.
