Print Exchange Update

Things are coming along great with the all of the students prints.  Many students are being quite ambitious and taking on 4 or 5 colors. I recommended two…I don’t think that they knew what they were getting into.  As they are beginning to print they are understanding why I made such a modest suggestion.

We are on schedule to have them finished for the art show during the first week of May.

Modern Art Timeline Print Exchange

So I had this idea…a really really good idea.  11 Students will use the Modern Art Timeline to inspire a print exchange. Students will be assigned a period from the time line, research it (do a presentation), find a way to create a design inspired by the their art period. Each student will create an edition of 15 prints.  That means each student will get a copy of every other persons print and there will be 4 sets left over. I will keep one and the other three suites (sets of prints) will be auctioned at the High School Art Show. Students will decided how to donate the proceeds.

We began the project a few weeks into the quarter and students are now beginning to print. I am very very excited about the project so far.

I will keep the blog updated with our progress.
