The Power of the Print
Tam, Jeff
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v110 n1 p38 Aug-Sep 2010
The print has a long-standing tradition of carrying a political message. This can be seen in the works of artists from the German Expressionists, like Kathe Kollwitz and Emil Nolde, to Mexican printmakers like Jose Posada and Leopoldo Mendez. Whether it was during the Mexican Revolution of 1910, the War in Iraq, or the 2008 presidential election, prints pop up everywhere throughout history. This article describes how the author motivates students to find a cause for printmaking and explore the power of the print.
