We finished critique tonight with Gail, Kelly, Elbot and Jessica Pena.  All four students had excellent life-sized self portraits and sub-genre of choice drawings.  It’s really a treat to see each student’s unique take on these assignments.  I would like to give specific attention to Gail’s fabulous genre of choice – breast feeding – AND her resulting genre of choice drawing.  The color work, perspective, concept, and execution are exquisite.

Gail's sub genre of choice drawing

Laura also gave the class a demonstration on Xerox lithography, a process she employs often in her ceramic work.  Xerox lithography, or the Xerox transfer process, involves using gum arabic, water, and lithography ink to transfer a Xeroxed image onto cold-pressed watercolor paper. The process uses a traditional print-making press and brayers. It took most students a few tries before successfully transferring his/her images. Stark b/w Xerox images work best (as in high contrast and few mid-tones). Text and black/white designs transfer quite well also.  Some students achieved excellent results!  Check out next week’s blog for more info, or click here for the Print & Clay website and instructions.
