PRINTMAKING

About This Suitcase

This suitcase is a resource for students to get creative while understanding the history of the art. Carl Zigrosser, one of the earliest American curators, raised awareness for printmaking as a serious art form. He described the process of printmaking as follows: “The print is created through contact with an inked or un-inked plate, stone, block, or screen that has been worked on directly by the artist alone or with others.” The goal of this suitcase is for students to explore printmaking while knowing from where it came.
