Art Question Theodorah II by Senzeni Marasela (Linocut)

Select a work of art that was developed through one of the printmaking process we are

studying in Chapter 2.03.
Possible processes:
• Relief printing—woodcut, linocut
• Intaglio—engraving, drypoint, etching, aquatint, mezzotint
• Planographic printmaking—lithography, silkscreen printing
• Monotypes or monoprints

different types of printmaking, and the site “What is a print?” from the Museum of
Modern Art ( This
site is interactive and fun. Why do you think the artist choose that specific
process of printmaking to develop their vision? What attributes does that
particular process have that you believe the artist wanted? Slow down when you
are studying the different types of printmaking! (20 pts)

3. Why are you attracted to this print? Use the principles of design and the
vocabulary that you have studied in this class to describe why. Is it the subject,
the color, the space, the texture–what is it about this that attracts you.
Vocabulary, vocabulary, vocabulary.
