‘Art is that in which the hand, the head and the heart go together.’
The Printmaking course provides opportunities for students to complement their Vocational Education and Training subjects, practise their problem solving skills and express themselves creatively. During first semester, the Year 12 group explored a range of relief printing activities and developed a three colour reduction print using lino. This term, they are creating an art journal using mixed media techniques. The Year 11 group spent the first term experimenting with quick low technology printing. Recently, they submitted a stencilled print after a laborious process of developing a design and carefully cutting out the areas they wanted to print. This has led on to our screen printing module. Students are highly motivated and are currently planning a printed product and packaging. We look forward to enjoying what the hand, head and heart have produced.
