Printmaking with Geometric and Nature-Inspired Forms
Burtner, Erin
Arts & Activities, v152 n3 p26-27, 34-35 Nov 2012
What excites the author the most is finding something new and turning it into a lesson her students will enjoy and learn from. Lately, she has been most inspired by the work she finds on one website. The lesson began with a brief PowerPoint based on an artist's website. This particular artist--Jennifer Schmitt--does reduction prints using several matrixes. As she and her class looked at the exemplars, she explained to students they would be doing something similar, using two matrixes. The author asked them to pay attention to what they feel works, and what they feel doesn't work, within the images they were about to be shown, and to pay particular attention to color, shape, line, dominance and harmony. In this activity, students learn printmaking with geometric and nature-inspired forms.
