This term, we also took a group of Year 10s to visit the Fine Art workshop at Newman College. The session aimed to explore the use of printmaking within a ‘Natural Forms’ theme. Under instruction from subject specialist Andrea Chaunce, our students worked carefully to scratch into pre-prepared acetate blocks. These printing plates were later applied with a thin layer of ink and printed onto paper using the printing press.
We took students from a variety of CAT Faculty subjects. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience of touring the College, viewing the Atrium Exhibition, exploring the Photography Studios and being able to experiment with a new technical process for their portfolio work.
Below are some of the examples created during this fantastic FE experience. Well done to everyone who took part and many thanks to Newman College for accommodating us.
