Students continue to explore different natural and human elements of their photographs and go on to create a mixed media overlay print in response to this juxtaposition of elements.
They will examine frame, detail, line, position and colour in the process and learn and practice a variety of printmaking and medium effects while creating their artwork.
Media used will include drawing, painting, printing, mixed media, textiles and collage.
