Foam Printmaking


Lately, I did styrofoam printmaking with my 4th/fifth grade courses. Styrofoam printing is a comparatively straightforward method to introduce printmaking to a bunch of children. It’s messy and will be difficult, so I’m offering a video demonstration on this weblog submit.

The supplies wanted are:

For this undertaking, I gave the scholars an open-ended theme. They may select both 1. One thing from Greek mythology (they had been finding out historical Greece and Rome) or 2. One thing from a guide they learn. That is very open-ended- it was simply to present them a place to begin. After they completed making one print, they may make one other of something they needed.

On the primary day, I confirmed them half of my demonstration video. Then, they sketched out concepts and transferred them to their printing plate.

On the second day, I confirmed them the second half of the video after which we began printing the photographs.

On the third day, any youngsters who weren’t performed had time to complete up.

There may be additionally a method to do Styrofoam printing utilizing simply washable markers. You’ll be able to see a tutorial right here.

Right here is one other lesson utilizing Styrofoam printing of arctic animals with first grade.

This lesson on PEACE was a success with my college students.

Have enjoyable creating your personal Valentine’s day playing cards in this coronary heart printing undertaking.
