5th and 6th Grade Art
The students were printmaking machines! They must have pulled 200 prints in each 40 minute class. The ink was flying and the excitement was obvious. Each student enjoyed experimenting and everyone was willing to mess up several times to get the result they wanted. It was gratifying to see the level of experimentation happening and the willingness to mess up. Some of the best art happens when you do not know what to expect! Printmaking is a nice follow-up to the more intensive cut paper project and I think the students appreciated the different approaches to making art.
