I’m all the time searching for kids’ artwork tasks that basically seem like artwork and it is a good one. Printmaking permits kids to use paper and paint in a brand new manner!
plastic web page protectors
Sharpie markers (elective)
1. Draw massive outlines of flowers and leaves on items of paper. Put every define right into a web page protector.
2. Make a paint dauber by clipping a cotton ball into a garments pin. Students use the paint dauber to put paint onto the sheet protector.
three. Fill within the define with dots of paint. (In the image I switched from a leaf define to a tulip define.)
four. Lay a clean piece of paper on prime of the painted sheet protector. Gently press down to switch paint onto the paper. Carefully peel the paper up off the plastic and you’ve got your print.
You can press on one other piece of paper and get a lighter print or add extra paint to the plastic to make one other darker print.
Optional – After the paint dries you may have your college students use Sharpie markers to hint across the edges and round any white spots in the course of the print. You might want to have your college students lower their prints out.
