The 6th graders have been studying ancient Egypt in their social studies and science classes. They came to Art class to use heiroglyphs in a more modern art. After creating a foam collograph tile featuring a heiroglyph of either their first or last name, the students practiced printmaking. The students’ goal was to create a rotation around a pivot point with their tile, similar to the wings of a ceiling fan. Using the rotation technique, the students printed an abstract pattern onto larger paper, and finished it with a little extra color!
