Collagraph is a basic method of printmaking using a board with collage materials glued onto it to form a relief surface with a variety of textures. A very creative and experimental form of printmaking, collagraph prints can be made with many different materials. The word is derived from the Greek word koll or kolla (meaning glue) and graph (meaning the activity of drawing). The process is relatively simple and can be enjoyed by virtually every age group. You will create a picture or abstract collage by cutting, pasting and gluing layers of different materials to a surface or carving, cutting and peeling to take parts of the surface away - and then apply ink or paint before pressing your image onto paper. The end result is a colorful, dramatic piece of unique art! Please bring an X-Acto knife and a pencil to class. A $20 materials fee is payable to the instructor in class.
