Presentation

Élisabeth Dupond

Élisabeth Dupond has had several solo expositions and participated in numerous national and international group exhibitions. She received the printmaking award of Ville de Montréal, (Le Nouveau Monde contest, 1992). She is represented in several public and private collections in Canada, France and Italy. Closer to gesture and matter then theory, the artist lays emphasis on space transformation.

Proposed approach and type of activities



Following a short introduction and after putting the activity into context, the artist reviews the various constraints related to the project: themes, reference points, constant elements, variations, etc. The moderator then presents and introduces students to the techniques employed. After having done a sketch on paper, participants will engrave their plate. The plates will then be inked (printing ink or thick gouache) using rollers, brushes or sponges, then printed on paper. Several copies of each print can be produced. The proposed activities are based on simplified and accessible techniques, which however retain the basic characteristics of prints. The sessions permit an introduction to the art print technique and its language. The workshop can be adapted according to the age, the graphic skills, dexterity and experience of participants. The artist can work with recycled materials as well as with tools and materials similar to those of professional artists. The individual creative experience contributes to the success and quality of this group project.

Techniques employed

  • Stamp pad: suited for the youngest students having little experience. Short periods and small budgets.
  • Engraving on Styrofoam: suited for the youngest students having little experience, but will also interest students with more skills. Short periods and small budgets.
  • Collagraphy: suited for the youngest students having little experience, but will also interest students with more skills. Longer periods (drying time) and small budgets.
  • Lino cuts: requires a certain manual dexterity, tools and specialized materials (hollow chisel, sheet and lino). Accessible to young students (minimum of 6 years of age) in small groups. Bigger budgets.
  • Wood engraving: requires a certain manual dexterity, tools and specialized materials (hollow chisel, sheet of plywood).


Examples of activities

Art print mosaic
Making of art prints which, once assembled, will form a whole. Once printed, a copy made by each student is kept to create the mosaic.

Art print cards
Creation of a personalized deck of cards. After having determined the theme and the various “families”, each student makes one or two playing cards, then prints them in as many copies as there are participants. The cards are then grouped together to make as many decks as there are students.

Artist's book
Creation of a small book having a few pages (minimum 4). May be approached from a group or individual standpoint. Possibility of integrating text.

Greetings all
Each participant designs, engraves and prints several copies of a greeting card.

My first art print
Each participant is invited to engrave and print several copies of a small art print.


Special conditions

The workshop requires ink for linoleum prints or water-based thick gouache, paper (cartridge or newsprint) at a maximum cost of $100 per day.
