Gr. 9 Printmaking

  1. 1. Unit 4: Printmaking
  2. 2. Printmaking  Printmaking is used to produce multiple copies of the same design.  The original creation in printmaking is called a matrix/plate.  Each copy made from that original is called a print.  Works printed from a single plate create an edition.  Each print is signed and numbered in the order that they are printed.
  3. 3. Printmaking Common types of plates include: 1. metal - usually copper or zinc for engraving or etching, 2. stone - used for lithography, 3. blocks of wood for woodcuts, 4. linoleum for linocuts, 5. plastic (transparencies) and manila paper for stencils, 6. You can even use clay or potatoes to make stamps.
  4. 4. Printing with Linoleum  Linoleum: solidified linseed oil  Traditional linoleum needs heat to soften it. Carve a design into it.  Relief Print: the high parts of your carving will pick up the ink, and print a mirror image of your carving.
  5. 5. Printmaking Project You will complete a worksheet about Inuit culture. In your sketchbook, you will draw 3 interesting designs that involve line, texture, and negative space. You will make a linocut using one of these designs, and submit 10 good linoprints.
  6. 6. Characteristics of Inuit Art • Simplified forms • Organic lines and shapes
  7. 7. Characteristics of Inuit Art • Flat, doesn’t look 3D • Use of geometric pattern • Uses nature for its subject matter
  8. 8. Characteristics of Inuit Art • Simplified forms • Organic lines and shapes • Flat, doesn’t look 3D • Use of geometric pattern •Uses nature for its subject matter
  9. 9. Examples of Inuit Art
  10. 10. Artist's Statement: Printmaking 1) Do you think you were successful in creating texture in your linoprint? Where is it? What kind of texture is it? 2) Do you think you incorporated enough negative space to create interesting contrast in your linoprint? Explain. 3) What did you like or dislike about this project?
