1 Project Title: Lino printing using patterns in the environment
Success Criteria Complete design marking out areas of black, try to balance black against white areas. Consider thickness of lines Transfer design onto lino once checked. Mark the white areas ready for cutting away. Printing – test print first Homework Annotation to explain how you developed and printed your lino print design. Type up. Use the following words ,if possible repeat, tessellation, pattern, marks, texture, bench hook, rollers, ink, design, transfer, health and safety. Due in 16th Jan

2 WALT develop printing skills
Success Criteria Complete design, check the repeat, transfer onto lino Go over in pen and mark out white Cut away white safely Prepare background to work onto Finish any other work whilst backgrounds dry Print

3 WALT: develop resources to produce a lino print using a repeating motif
Success Criteria On tracing paper select two leaves from your work and compose an interesting, clear repeating motif. Consider the textures and mark making you might use



6 WALT develop printing and presentation skills.
Success Criteria Complete prints Mount up and annotate Identify one piece for improvement and work on it

7 WALT Develop marks to show a range of textures
Success Criteria Consider the composition of your drawing – how many leaves and whether they overlap. Using inks consider the quality of the marks and the variety of marks and how these will translate into lino Look at the work of Van Gogh to give you a range of ideas for mark making


9 How to Mono print Information
How to Mono print - Different Techniques Mono printing uses printing materials but only produces one image. roll out a layer of thin ink onto a surface and then place paper over the top draw onto the back of the paper peel off the paper Try different tools to create different thicknesses of line, or use your fingers to create shading techniques. Monotypes are made by applying paint or ink to a non-porous surface and using pressure to transfer the resulting image to a piece of absorbent paper. After the paper is carefully peeled up and set aside to dry, the surface can be wiped clean and the process repeated. This direct transfer process allows artists to create prints without the use of silk-screens, engraved plates, woodblocks or other printmaking devices. The limitation of this process is that it creates only single editions. The "mono" part of monoprint or monotype should give you a clue that these are printing techniques that product one-off prints. The words tend to be used interchangeably, but The Printmaking Bible distinguishes between the terms thus: A monotype is "a singular print created through an acknowledged process that can be learnt and replicated to gain similar effects with different images" and a monoprint is "a singular work that can be produced without the need to undergo a series of steps."1 A monotype is created using a printing plate without any lines/texture on it; a unique image is made in the ink each time. A monoprint is uses a printing plate with permanent elements to it, for instance engraving lines. Although how you ink the plate produces different results, these permanent elements will appear in every print. The printing technique can basically be done in three ways, all of which involves either putting printing ink or paint on a non-porous surface (such as a piece of glass) and then applying pressure to transfer it to a sheet of paper. The first monoprint technique (trace monoprinting) is to roll out the ink or paint on the surface, gently place a sheet of paper on it, then press onto the sheet of paper to selectively transfer the ink to the paper and create the image by where and how you've applied pressure. The second monoprint technique is very similar, except you create a design in the ink before you place the paper, then use a brayer (or spoon) on the back of the paper to transfer the ink. Use something absorbent such as a cotton swab (bud) to lift paint, or scratch into it with something hard such as brush handle (sgraffito). The third monoprint technique is to create the image as you place the ink or paint on the surface, then use a brayer, back of a spoon, or printing press to transfer the image to the paper

Homework Year 10 MARK HERALD, LYN BERWICK, MATTHEW SELLWOOD, AMANDA COLVILLE Research the lino printers listed above and produce the following work: Two printouts in colour of their work One practical piece of work, from one of your printouts, which could be in pencil, ink, paint, collage, coloured pencils. A detailed written description of one of the pieces of the lino printers work, considering the use of artistic terms such as: tone pattern mark-making textures form design image line print repeat abstract representational realistic shape Extension Work Find another lino printing artist and produce one piece of practical work from their work and list the similarities and differences between your two chosen artists. Present all the work appropriately. DUE IN ANNOTATION for MONOPRINTING. When annotating your monoprinting use the following as guidelines: Paragraph 1 Explain the process eg ‘ink is rolled out very thinly using…’ Include any health and safety issues too eg care with organisation of inks, use of palette knife, use of white spirit when cleaning up etc. Paragraph 2 How you personally went about creating your print eg ‘ I was able to produce a strong image the second time round by working from a clearer water image and using….’ Paragraph 3 What works well in your monoprint and how you would go about making effective changes. Make this paragraph as detailed and thoughtful as possible.
