6th Graders started a new Printmaking unit last week. They were given sheet of printing foam and asked to draw out a bug thinking about positive and negative space and remembering that what we color on the foam in black will be the white in the print and that the print runs backwards so we needed to avoid letters or symbols. Then this week using stamping inks students need to create a complete artist proof. These small proofs needed to be printed and matted all in one day. Next week we will switch from stamping ink to printing in and see what kind of a differerence that makes in our prints. These little prints make great bookmarks and help us to see better if changes need to be made to our foam cuts before our final prints.
