Saturday afternoons are looking to be creatively magical with a wonderful + enthusiastic group of young artists.

This week our theme was NOTICING and as we began our introduction to printmaking inspired by a bunch of equally ‘wild’ and imaginative books, students played with printing texture and layers, background and foreground, ghost prints and more!

Students took home a gorgeous ‘mothers day’ print of their favourite autumn leaf adjacent our custom quote and we gathered all their experimental printmaking into their folio’s for collation over the 6 week series!

Next week’s theme is IMAGINATION: the ‘Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton¬†and ‘Stuck’ by Oliver Jeffers will project us into our experiments with mono printing and etching. Can’t wait!
