List of Techniques to cover

Robert Rauschenberg

A list of all the techniques you should have covered (and have evidence of in your sketchbook) before the end of the project:
  • Tonal pencil drawing.
  • Photography.
  • Stick and Ink drawing.
  • Charcoal drawing.
  • Collage base drawing.
  • Photocopier invert.
  • Monoprinting.
  • Relief (gold card) printing.
  • Spray stencil.
  • Acetate collage.
  • Coloured Inks and bleach.
  • PhotoShop.
You will need to have a little money for acetate tomorrow (available in the LRC for 20p a sheet).

During this project the time factor means there is limited opportunity to combine the techniques we have tackled, but in terms of your future work this is one of the most important things to do. Some of the best student work comes from layering the methods to create rich and complex images. One Artist who is a master at combining media and techniques is Robert Rauschenberg.

So in addition to the drawings of Jim Dine and the collage work of Florian Nicolle you should also complete your research by looking at the mixed media work of Robert Rauschenberg.
