Class Collaboration

Theme: Suits Me; ARTS 3320 Printmaking: Relief/Monotype, BGSU; Mixed Media; 2013

This project was designed in conjunction with Arts-X, the BGSU Arts Festival. The theme was “Wonderland”, so students created a large scale face card self portrait of what they wanted to be–as children–when they grew up. The woodcuts were executed in a variety of techniques, editioned, and a pattern was screenprinted on the back to mimic a deck of cards. The students then designed and built a house of cards large enough for a small child to enter (the peak is roughly 8′ tall). Students then donated three from their editions to shape into masks for children attending the festivities to decorate and take home.
