Chine collé is a graphic process that adds pieces of collage to the print (Šturm, 2016).
In my paper, this process is presented in detail. It is also described how this process can be performed at arts education in primary school.
In the theoretic part of the paper, I first explained the concept of graphics. I made a thorough description of rotogravure printing and the technique of the dry needle that I later on performed in combination with chine collé. After that, I explained the concept of chine collé and described the process of chine collé printing.
At the art workshop, I presented my technological tests with chine collé. With them, I wanted to find out if we can perform chine collé with regular glue for paper and if we can reduce bending of thin papers for chine collé because of the applied glue. I was also interested if chine collé can also be performed in a quality way without a graphic press and if the process of chine collé can be performed correctly with graphic colour on water basis. At these tests, I combined chine collé with the dry needle technique that was adjusted for performance in school.
In the pedagogic part of the paper, I formed a teaching plan for teaching the performance of the dry needle graphic technique with chine collé in primary school. I had this lesson in the 8th grade of primary school. At the end, I evaluated some of the artworks by the students.
