What is a foundry?

A foundry is the place where metal is melted and shaped to make sculptures. Artists bring their finished wax sculptures to have the foundry create molds in the same shape, or create a finished metal sculpture using the wax sculpture.

Collage

A production art technique primarily and commonly used in visual arts where artwork is made through assemblage of forms of different kinds to wholly create a new one. It may at times include ribbons, newspaper & magazine clipping, bits of handmade or colored papers, photographs, portions of texts and other objects.

Monoprint

Single impression belonging to an image made out of a block that is re-printable. Litho stones, wood blocks or metal plates are used for the purpose of etching upon. Only one impression is produced rather than producing several copies of one image. Mono-printing has many techniques that include etching, lithography and woodcut.
