The boys from Fifth Class got a great chance to see real artists at work when they visited the Market house on Monday. The title of the exhibition was "Artists' Proof" and was all about the art of printing. The boys got to see some of the copper etchings an artist uses and also got to see examples of wood block and lithographs.
The highlight for the boys was when they go to 'have a go' on an acetate print and on a copper etching print. It was terrific fun.
Thanks to the Market House for inviting us. And special thanks to Alva and Clare, the artists who showed us what to do.
