As an introduction to color theory and practical application of working with paint, I often have my students create a forgery of a well know piece if art. This year we all worked together on a large scale Warhol forgery and I installed it today next to our copy of Winged Victory.
My printmaking class has just finished their first dry point etching project and I wanted to push them into using their new intaglio skills in a book. Inspired by the work of Judith Hoffman, particularly her book 7 Extinction Events, I plan on asking my students to create a one-sheet intaglio printed book inside of a toy that explores the theme of “inside.”
These images are of my 4th prototype in trying to combine a toy with a book and I think I finally got it to work!
