Printmaking! April 4, 2012

Elementary and High School students have been working on printmaking. My 2D&3D class at the HS made linoleum relief stamps of their own design. We used the ink in solid colors at first. When they became comfortable, I showed them how to use multiple colors. They had to make clean prints and incorporate their stamp into their sketchbooks.

Here are the 5th grade students printing their names with a styrofoam plate. These are cheap and easy to create. I love these colors! We review color mixing with our ink.

Painting students have been working hard and learning the basics of blending, shading, and handing acrylic paint. They have finished black and white paintings where they were only allowed to use black and white paint. This allowed the students to really focus on shading and contrast.
