Through 18 years of trial and error, I have developed a comprehensive process that allows students through collaboration, to experience first-hand what it takes to create a personalized monumental sculpture. This process not only aligns with the new art standards, it, more importantly, has changed the learning environment and the way I teach.

Collagraph Intaglio Printing
Frank Bush” color=”grey-lite”][vc_column_text]

This workshop presentation shared ideas and techniques that can be used with an intaglio printing press using cardboard and water-based materials instead of copper or zinc plates. This technique is valuable to learn intaglio printmaking processes in public schools who do not have the resources for traditional materials or facilities to accommodate acids for etching metal plates. Lessons can be adapted for multiple age levels.
