Experimental Collagraph Printmaking
Collagraphy is a versatile mixed-media printing process that combines relief printing, intaglio printing and collage. Using simple materials – cardboard, foil, glue, fabric and sandpaper – students will create collagraph plates to print on the museum’s large etching press. Students will learn printmaking basics and tips on how to practice at home. Beginners and experienced artists are both welcome!
Some supplies provided, but students will need:
- 9” x 12” hot-press watercolor paper, 140 lbs, 20 sheets
- Various household supplies to make texture, such as: old toothbrush, sandpaper, mesh, string, cardboard, etc.
