Art Show at the Richmond Free Library- RES

Before the month of March is out, please make sure that you stop by the Richmond Free Library to see the leaf prints by RES fourth grade artists. 
Over thirty works are on display!

Fourth grade artists explored positive and negative shapes in these monoprints. These are called monoprints because each is unique and can be produced only once, unlike processes such as woodcuts or photography.  Fourth graders placed leaves over an inked surface, and pulled a print in which the leaf shapes are left white, producing a negative of the image.  These artists then removed their leaves, and pulled a second print in which we see the leaves as the positive shapes of the image. Go see them soon!
