Egyptian Heiroglyphs April 14, 2011

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 2:45 pm

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!
