Location: St. Paul's School. Grades 1-2. Using an exciting array of printing techniques without a press, young students learn the basic principles of printmaking. Any object with texture can be printed on paper or other flat surfaces using printing ink or other wet media. With this in mind, students are encouraged to look at the world with an eye for printing possibilities. Veins in leaves, embossed Styrofoam, textured fabric, natural objects, feathers and sponges all become printable objects. Because of the potential for multiple prints and repetition, printmaking allows the artist to create fantastic patterns, color combinations and designs.

Students combine a mixture of additive and subtractive techniques to create sculptures that may be large or small, smooth or rough, uniform or multi-colored, individual or collaborative. Drawing inspiration from artists such as Brancusi, Moore, Nevelson, and many more, students think about the way sculpture can convey a likeness, repeat forms, express a concept or emotion, and utilize space in visually interesting ways. Emphasis is on sculptures as artful three-dimensional objects that can be viewed from all sides, with a form and surface treatment that are cohesive and expressive of the students' ideas and vision.

Students explore tone and value to create and define the form of the figure within the space it exists. Perceiving the figure as positive and negative shapes and issues of proportion and anatomy are addressed. Using traditional drawing media, students work from the model in different interior settings to apply learned rendering techniques in developing figure drawings while establishing a convincing illusion of space in their compositions.

Emphasis is on breaking "out of the box" in expressive use of color media, with a variety of prompts guiding students to make meaning and incorporate narratives into their work. This is a fast-paced class, with students generating a large body of studies and exercises as they build a strong foundation and comfort with the use of each color medium. The confident painter will then be asked to synthesize this knowledge to create larger, cohesive paintings based on a selected theme.
