Year 3 Collagraph Printing
This term, Year 3s are exploring print making. For our first art piece, students learning about collagraph printing (sometimes spelled collograph). In essence, a collagraph is a collage that is ink and printed.
Students took 2 classes to plan and create their collage. Year 3s used thick card stock and pva glue to build their collages. They spent one class creating their two prints using white ink and black paper.
I am also teaching them to mount their art work, so they spent half a class mounting their art on cover paper using ruler lines and careful cutting!
