LA Code: 

This is a practical class where we work on skills and knowledge of art making. There will be opportunities to learn about art and artists and to make our own art. We will be visiting some art in the city and may have the opportunity to have artists visit us to inspire and educate.

To begin the year we will be learning about the art of Printmaking. Printmaking is an artistic process based on the principle of transferring images from a matrix onto another surface, most often paper or fabric. We will learn some basic principles and then begin experimenting using different blocks, papers and inks, trying to grow our understanding of what you can use to make prints with. We will be using tools and materials which require sharing, so be prepared.
We will also do some collaborative printmaking too.

In the second half of the term we might move away from printmaking and do some drawing, starting with simple concepts and getting more complex as we go. Again, we can learn about what things we can use to draw with and have some fun giving things a go. You will also have the opportunity to plan and work on your own project if you want to.

In this class you will be expected to practice your core values at all times as we suspect the group will be quite big. That means working together, looking after others as well as ourselves and giving things a go.
