Tom Brooks has a lot riding on his elephant skin.
After he was gifted the material from a fiber artist, Brooks used the skin on his collagraph graphic design project that will not only be graded by his professor but also will be seen by the public.
Brooks, 31, a junior at Colorado Mesa University, is one of dozens of university and high school students participating in the second Road Roller Printmaking project hosted by the university’s art department. The project will engage not only university students in a large-scale form of printmaking, it also gives Palisade International Baccalaureate Art students and the public the chance to learn about printmaking and the university’s art department.
More than 30 Palisade International Baccalaureate Art students will partner with dozens of university students on the finished road roller prints, which will be printed from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21, in the main plaza on campus.
