Began Printmaking Unit for Grade 4 Classes

I teach studio art to students at a NYC public school 2 days a week through 
an amazing arts organization called Studio In a School. This week, I started my 4th graders on a printmaking unit. Children used everyday objects to create designs lined in concentric circles. You too can do this. We used corks, spools, cookie cutters, marker tops, wooden blocks and plastic animals to make our prints. 
          Pay attention how the prints fade as the paint runs out. The unit will get more and more intricate and advanced in the following weeks, this is just a fun intro. I'll keep you posted!
