Endangered Animals: A Drawing and Printmaking Project

Visual Art students began their drawing project by learning to use a grid. A grid enables students to gain confidence by breaking down complex images into simple (smaller) parts. Each of these images are hand drawn, using a small photo for reference. Students completed the drawing portion of this project by using a Sharpie marker to create contrast (similar to the notans they previously created). Color was added by using a simple printmaking technique. Students colored a piece of tin foil with markers, sprayed it with water and then pressed their drawing on the foil. The watercolor-esque result is beautiful and hard to control.
