Ellen and Johan’s explorations in Printmaking

From the first meeting up until today, we have made a drypoint and printed it using the chine colle technique.  The press was used for this method.  The new plate is a very intricate collagraph.  I hope to learn more techniques to create more complex plates as well.

A test trial of chine colle and glue print in order to inform me of what the media can do. It is also for the reason of observation of this technique.

First attempt in drypoint. I carved the image into a plastic plate, inked it and used the press to print it.

Mentor Marie Laffont-Amazing Shoe Designer

Ms. Laffont spoke with our young artists on the intricacy and work that goes into designing shoes that then go to market. This included a technique called mood boards where all forms of inspiration and ideas from magazines and texture books are stuck unto a large piece of cardboard which end up fueling the designs for a shoe.
