Close: Process and Collaboration.
The accompanying website includes
a teacher packet (under “Learning
Resources”) divided into the headings “Talking About Art,” “Viewing
Prints,” and “Thinking About Art.”
Each consists of a series of questions
for elementary and secondary students
about printmaking, portraiture, and
the work of Chuck Close.
“Making Art” provides five
hands-on classroom experiences for
elementary and secondary classrooms, and “Print Making Processes”
explains relief techniques (linoleum or
wood block), intaglio (etching, aquatint, direct gravure, and mezzotint),
the planographic process (lithography),
and stencil processes (silkscreen). A
link to MoMA’s interactive feature
“What Is a Print?” appears on this
page. A glossary is included, and the
teacher packet can be downloaded.
Under “Related Projects and Activities,” only one site could be accessed,
a lesson plan on “Grid-Method Portraits” ( www.art-rageous.net/GridPor-traitIntro.html).
On the main site, you can find
more information about Close and
this exhibition. A useful feature called
“Understanding the Process” appears
under the heading “Process and Collaboration.” The nature of Close’s
collaboration with master printers is
expanded upon, and three of the processes are broken down and illustrated
