Quilt Prints April 7, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 7:32 am

The 8th graders just finished a printmaking unit.  After viewing images of freedom quilts, those used to help the efforts of the Underground Railroad, the students created quilt squares.  Using the method of reduction linoleum printing, each square in the design has been printed twice, using the same block.  The 8th graders had a choice of keeping all of their quilt squares for themselves, or trading among each other.
