On Friday, May 17th students from Studio Arts 2 classes took a field trip to the Twin Cities. The students visited the Minneapolis Institute of Arts in the afternoon and took in a wide variety of artwork.
The highlight of the trip was a morning visit to the Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis. This trip was funded, in part, by the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts council with an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
While there, students had the awesome opportunity to be a part of a printmaking workshop. We learned the basic techniques and processes of monoprinting and were able to create two or three prints while there. The process is fairly simple- 1. Create a design using stencils. 2. Add color using ink. 3. Place on a plexiglass plate and press this design onto paper using a printmaking press.
Every student had great designs with awesome results! The student’s work will be on display at the Coffee Hag from May 25th through June 5th with a reception May 31st at 7:00.
