Residency: Collograph Printing

Artist: Multiple Artists

Type: Residencies


Building up collograph plates using oak tag and glue is similar to the collage process. Students will use self-portraiture as an inspiration, and look at the many ways visual artists have expressed the self. Students will then work with shape and composition to build up self-portraits, thinking about expression, details, identity, and texture. After arranging and rearranging the oak tag forms, students will assemble and layer the oak tag, developing surfaces called "plates" that will then be printed multiple times. Students will be stunned by the magic of spontaneity of this process, and will gain confidence combining ink colors and printing on different types of paper.
