The 3rd graders finished a screen printing project, which is a warm-up to real silk screen printing. Aligned with their science studies, the students drew invertebrates on a blue screen. The lines on the screen were pushed out, allowing the paint to be rolled through. Students made between 4 and 12 prints each with their screens. The best prints were included in an accordion book, along with a scratch paper version and a collaged print made from less successful prints.
