To conclude our project The Way things Go at Merton Park primary School after school art club we collaborated to make several giant collograph printed works.
We began by looking at the work of artists Fichilli and Weiss in two sessions where we investigated The Way Things Go and Playing Seriously. We then went on to look at Machine Parts and experimented with texture, examining the work of Richard Tuttle. (click the links to see how the project developed.)
Each final individual print was made using the collograph technique we learnt earlier in the term.
Some were just decorative, exploring repetition and pattern, but we looked how the shapes could interlock, like the original machines parts we we observed in our drawings. See The Way Things Go As it was our last session we then worked as a team to display our work for our parents to see.
We arranged our original drawings
Our collograph plates
And the final group works. Its a shame we didn’t have time to show the films we made of moving sculptures right at the start of the project.
Here is the email I got!
