Art Club 3 30 Jan 2014

In art club today we continued on our African theme and did some mono printing inspired by African Masks. Here’s how we did it:
Step1: roll out some block printing ink on a smooth surface – we used a table, but glass and mirrors work well too. Go easy on the ink; not too much now!
Step 2: place your paper on top of your ink.
Step 3: draw! Use a variety of drawing tools and explore different mark making techniques. Also, vary the pressure you apply to create areas of contrast. Lift your print to see how it’s going every now and then.
Step 4: reveal your print (the best bit!) and get going straight away on another one. We did 2 or 3 prints each in less than an hour.
