Charter High School for Architecture + Design (B)

Fall 2017
Classroom Teacher: Tara Capobianco
Teaching-Artist: Alexandra Snowden

Graphic design students at the Charter High School for Architecture + Design learned techniques in printmaking, collage and image manipulation which they used to interpret themes that emerged from the exhibition Martin Puryear: Prints, 1962-2016. Students explored formal concerns in print through experimentation with repetition and color, and they created a series of monoprints based on the theme of identity. They created photographic collages on the theme of abstraction as part of a challenge to incorporate non-traditional methods of self-representation in their projects.
