I just added a new page to my website where I’ll be posting links to some great online resource for art teachers, and for education in general.
One of my favorite mediums, and also one of my passions!
Intaglio engraving, as a method of making prints, was invented in Germany by the 1430s, well after the woodcut print. Engraving had been used by goldsmiths to decorate metalwork, including armour, musical instruments and religious objects since ancient times, and the niello technique, which involved rubbing an alloy into the lines to give a contrasting colour, also goes back to late antiquity. It has been suggested that goldsmiths began to print impressions of their work to record the design, and that printmaking developed from that.
For those who didn’t know about this site, prepare to be amazed – a free art history resource from Khan Academy:
Save the date! The 5th Annual CTK Art Show will be held May 9th and 10th this year! We’re looking forward to it!
So it’s a bit soon, but I’ll be posting more info at CTKArtShow.info when the time comes.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
