For Week 12, Assignment 4: Myths and Legends-Printing the Story (Part 2) Native American Legends (4/18)

We will meet in the classroomAt the start of class, we will review the prints you created last week and make comments and suggestions. No need to collect the prints from the Printmaking Lab yourselves.  I will bring your prints (and your leftover paper) to class with me. Be sure to bring back the plexi plates you etched into and printed from last week to include in the crit. After we have a brief critique, you will continue with the second part of your project. 

1. COMPLETE A TWO PAGED SHORT READING on Seven of the Most Popular Legends attached (here.)  Please note this is not the same reading you completed for last week. This is an additional reading to prepare for this coming Thursday.

2. Based on your choice from this week’s reading, create ONE interpretative drawing on 8×10″ drawing paper. No need to make two. (Now that you are familiar with the printmaking process, you can better judge the outcome.) The image will serve as a tracing for your printing process.
Once the drawing is complete, put it on tracing paper or scan and print it in reverse.

1. Cash money to pay for another printing plate ($4.00 per plate) –You can purchase the plates from me again.
2. Purchase printmaking paperor use the paper you have left over from last class.

Please email me if you have any questions about preparing for class.
