On view through spring 2012 in the two cases adjacent to the Young Adult Gallery will be a series of collograph boards created by Newton North High School students. Collograph is a print-making method where the plate is built up by collaging various materials onto a cardboard base to create a rich variety of shape and texture from which many prints can be made. During the printing process the boards take on a rich patina and a variety of colors.
