In the study of Book, we’ve had a lot of room to explore the process of printing and the printing press itself. Before the Thanksgiving break, each student was assigned a letter – upper or lower case – to design for a one-of-a-kind Brightworks font! The results were pretty unique!
The Green Band has been digitally tracing each letter so that our laser printer can make cutouts out of wood material to ink onto paper.
The Orange Band has been taking a look at several different kinds of printing presses and took a trip to the Aesthetic Union, a printmaking studio just around the corner from the school.
The Red Band visited Charles Chocolates to see another kind of print making – with chocolate!
