Stamp Printing


Students are introduced to an elemental form of printmaking in this workshop. They are directed to think about the use of non-traditional materials for image-making and consider the relationships between pattern, color, textiles, and music. They view prints by the artist; African, Indian, and Turkish textiles; and works by other artists to introduce and identify the concepts of pattern, overlapping, design, and optical color mixing. Students create stamps from available objects and then print on paper and/or fabric.
