Year 7 Art Students chose a native animal to base their lino design on.

  • I supplied them with images and showed them different ways of drawing an animal .
  • I worked with the ideas of shape building to help the students draw an effective design that
    captured their chosen animal.
  •  We then focused on the line design that was to surround the animal image.
  • During this study we looked at aboriginal imagery and patterning and discussed the various way
    line was used and could be used.
  • Students then drafted their drawing onto the lino using the grey lead transfer method.
  • Once the design was on the lino they used permanent marker to ensure the image stayed during
    the cutting weeks but in general students enjoyed this process.
  • After this course it was time for the exciting part, the print test runs. 
  • Students then created collages that explored shape to further extend their design element study.
  • Once completed they printed over them to create interesting  layered effects.
