Printing Makes Perfect

IMG_0485 IMG_0486

Kindergarten students have been working on the art of printmaking! What fun we have had in the art room! Printmaking can be done in various ways using a myriad of media.  For this lesson, students used tempera paint, paint brushes, white paper and colored cardstock.  Printmaking involves making art through printing, giving the art a truly unique look with the most subtle characteristics.

We practiced making various types of marks with our brushes before and during the printing process. We discovered that time was of the essence in ensuring our paint didn’t dry before printing!

These gorgeous works of art are just a small selection from Miss Cormio’s Wednesday class.

Printmaking: Expect the Unexpected

Students at McGlynn Elementary are experimenting with various forms of printmaking in the classroom. It is messy, time consuming, and loads of fun! Here is a small sampling of collaborative work from Mrs. Notaro’s class. Students worked together to create their first monoprint! I look forward to seeing more work as we take off on this printmaking journey!
