Inexpensive Printmaking

In this workshop participants will explore three different kinds of printmaking for classroom use which are inexpensive and practical. Participants will be shown how the prints can be used in a number of cross curricula activities.

Clay inspired by place

Artists often live in or visit places that give them ideas. This workshop explores place as inspiration for claywork. Examples of ceramic artists inspired by place and how these can be used in the classroom as part of a program that includes responding to art will be presented. Slab construction and modelling techniques will be demonstrated and practised in this session. Techniques are suitable for all age levels. Practical tips for managing clay in the classroom will be shared. It is not necessary to have a kiln in your school for this task to be implemented.
