RESIDENCY GOALS

Building and creating the print matrix allows students to realize there are numerous ways to start a work of art or attack a problem.

 

Printmaking is by nature is an experimental, repetitive, and perceptive process. When you are printmaking, it’s not only the final product but whole process and the experience that matters.

 

Students will learn historical facts of printmaking with an introductory presentation based on project. They will also learn technical vocabulary, and proper use and care of materials and tools. After prints are made students will be have a chance to look at finished work and discuss the process as well as the products, while using learned vocabulary.

 

The many forms of printmaking allow the medium to be easily adjusted for varying age, ability, and content. An exciting factor of printmaking is the possibilities of multiples, giving students opportunity to experiment with the medium.

 

BIO

Printmaking is a unique art form that fosters creative thinking, experimentation, listening skills, and community in the classroom. My passion for printmaking is shown though exciting lessons that fully engage all learners. Printmaking is a physical, community based art form unlike any another medium that always leads to excitement and engagement in the classroom. Often printmaking leads to beautiful unexpected results, that can be produced by all.

WORK WITH STUDENTS

Printmaking is a physical, community based art form unlike any another medium that always leads to excitement and engagement in the classroom. It often leads to beautiful unexpected results, that can be produced by all. Printmaking fosters creative thinking, experimentation, listening skills, and community in the classroom.

 

During residencies, in addition to structured art making, I include smaller open ended activities that allow students to explore the medium to imagine, create, and innovate. I provide big collaborative projects as well as individual projects.

 

I take all measures to work side by side with teachers to achieve specific learning objectives. I’m very flexible and enjoy collaborative endeavors.

 

 

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS

  • Science/Math- Printmaking is a natural way to be experimental, imaginative, and investigate detail, similar to science investigation, experimentation and, questioning. Research and hypothesis can inform prints. Prints of leaves and other natural objects are presented as scientific observation, and documentation. Geometry, and measurements are all a part of printmaking. The opportunity for multiples are great for patterning projects.
  • Language Arts- Offering a new creative experience pushes students to think outside the box and with a vivid imagination.  Creative writing, research, can inform art. Communication, speaking and listening skills required for collaborative and works. Speaking skills strengthened with classroom discussions.
  • Multicultural/Social Studies- Historically printmaking was used in many cultures, Japanese wood block printing and gyotaku (fish prints), Polynesian tapa printmaking, and early European intaglio prints are a few. Lessons can also be formed to personal culture. Community, culture, history, geography, and place can all be easily represented through printmaking.
