It's finally PRINTING WEEK!!
Last week, 8th grade students studied the art making process of printmaking. If you would like to see the presentation again, you can click you can check out Printmaking Prezi which explains all about the different processes with this art making. Students worked very hard on carving through "EZ cut" material to create a plate (what is used to make the print).
This week, students will be creating their final prints by adding ink to their plates to transfer their designs onto the paper.
Printmaking is a technique of art that is one of my favorites. It's messy and very fun to create many copies of your created design. Really looking forward to a fun and productive week.
