Animal Prints January 9, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 4:06 am

Third graders are currently in their printmaking unit.  Learning about endangered species and how humans and the environment are negatively affecting the animals, the students created printing plates of an endangered species.  Mr. Macomber’s class made collograph plates using oak tag while Mrs. Roderick’s class made screen prints.  The difference between the two styles of printmaking is the final result: collographs print shapes and screen prints print lines.

Some photos of the students printmaking:
