Some Great prints by some of our youngest prinmakers, combining original digital drawing using the Sketchbook Pro App, and screenprint with Chîne collé
The Arts in Education Team, Education Department of City & County of Swansea, has been delighted to work in collaboration with Swansea Print Workshop on the New Traditions in PrintProject which took place in the Spring Term 2017. Experienced outreach artist, Nina Morgan assisted by Lynne Bebb of the Arts in Education Team worked closely with pupils from Cilâ Primary, Gendros Primary and YGG Llwynderw to explore the themes of Castles, Robots and the SS Samtampa Disaster. Taking inspiration from their classroom studies, pupils were supported by teaching staff and the professional artists to explore the themes through drawing and printmaking.
Pupils used iPads and traditional drawing techniques to develop original drawings that were adapted for screen printing, utilising the well-equipped facilities of Swansea Print Workshop. Pupils then made prints of their drawing, the majority of which are displayed here. Swansea Print Workshop supported the schools with an informative and inspirational teacher’s pack which included information on techniques, ways of displaying artwork and entrepreneurial ideas.
