Outback Summer Programs, Part 1 August 18, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — alaplante @ 4:19 pm

Last week, I taught 2 printmaking classes during the Outback Summer Programs, part of the Agassiz Baldwin Community in Cambridge.  For the younger age group (grades 1 and 2), we focused our printing on summertime themes.  The kids first made leaf and vegetable stampings, using tempera paint.  They created collograph plates of insects and printed using the traditional method of inks and brayers.  For the 3rd project, the kids made foam etchings of flowers, and printed them using a simple marker-and-wet paper technique.  Finally, they painted monoprints on plexi-glass.
