In the art classes we are constantly being challenged with motifs, including in the area of print making. Print making includes many different techniques with different attributes. Some techniques allow the making of thin and precise lines, whereas some of them contain a flat disposition. All of that influence in creating a motif.
I wanted to research what kind of influences have those techniques in creating a motif or, in other words, do different techniques give better result than others.
I made my research in April and May 2016, in two eighth grade of primary school Vodice. In five hours we made with one class linocut, in other drypoint. Given motif was a human figure. After completed pedagogic work I came to conclusion that works done in linocut are much more original than those done in drypoint. Diversity was present in both techniques. Drypoint, drawing oriented technique which allows greater attention to detail, in this research was not confirmed. In the end of this research I came to conclusion that linocut was more suited to the students, that in the process they were more motivated, which is why the end results were more original.
This research was made in only two classes, which is why this finding cannot be generalized to the whole Slovenian student population. My findings, however, can encourage using different kinds of techniques, which will inspire originality in students.
