Make a Collagraph Print

Collagraphy (sometimes spelled collography) is a printmaking process in which materials are applied to a rigid substrate (such as paperboard or wood). The word is derived from the Greek word koll or kolla, meaning glue, and graph, meaning the activity of drawing. Students will create a 5” x 7” collagraph print by affixing cut-out and found object shapes (e.g. cut-outs from fabric and other collage materials, including bent pipe cleaners, string, and bio-organic material). In this piece, students will emphasize texture and the suggestion of narrative.

She was born and raised in central Virginia and graduated in 2016 from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors of Arts in both Photography and Communication Arts. While interning in Richmond she was able to participate in the growth of the community through collaborations, teamwork, and creative development.
