2nd Grade students made these lovely spring trees. We reviewed color mixing, used marker caps for stamps (track back to this post for more info), and talked about the cycle of a tree.



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.

  Turn them into stamps!

2nd grade are using old marker caps to stamp the background of their latest artwork, and they LOVED it! Click Here to see what we did with our stamped papers.
