This year's trophies were prepared with love by the Printmaking Class taught by Mr. José Cruz at the Commonwealth Campus.
Techniques Employed : Dry Point Etching & Watercolor
Dry Point Etching | Net & Gross Trophies
Artists: Entire Class
The Dry Etching technique is usually created on copper plates, but in workshops and schools, the use of acrylic sheets is most common. An image is scratched onto a plate with a needle tool, called a scriber.
Watercolor | Parent & Child Trophies
Artist: Inés Ramiréz, CPS Class of 2024
The watercolor medium has been used by artists for centuries. The design of the Parent/Child trophies was painted by Inés, in transparent watercolor. The idea is to let the whiteness of the watercolor paper illuminate. Henceforth, transparency, as opposed to opaque watercolor, means that the pigments have white in them for the opacity.
