Block Printing

Our amazing artists are currently creating art inspired by entomology (the study of insects).

From sketching, painting to printmaking, our learners have been developing their skills in the process of block printing and the results are beautiful. 

Block printing allowed learners to transform a simple pencil drawing into a beautiful, colourful print, and repeat the process again and again experimenting with different combinations of colour!

Learners were also able to develop skills over the weeks - including being encouraged to make changes to how hard the pressure of their pencil drawing was, how intricate the details were, to how much paint to roll onto their block tile.
