Recycled Material Printmaking

Outside of school I work as a printmaker, therefore my love for this process extends far beyond these art room walls. Printmaking is simply making a print of another object, often times this could be a carving in wood or an etching in a material such as copper. In Kindergarten and first grade this week we explored printmaking the best way possible, by using a variety of materials and creating a huge, creative mess in the art room.

Students were given wood blocks, bubble wrap and card board rings from tape. This printmaking project enabled us to discuss texture, shape and composition! The process as an adventure and the results are stunning….
